Blush Poinsettia


I've been asked to be Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Queen for the Day challenge today.  Here is Lori's card that I've chosen to CASE:


Her flowers and dots made me think of poinsettias and snow...crazy hmm?  We've still got lots of the white stuff around, but it is spring right?

This is another wonderful technique that I learned from the Online Card Classes Clean & Simple 3 from none other than the fabulous Debby Hughes.  She makes the most amazing cards!  The poinsettia was heat embossed in white and the sentiment stamped in black.

Next, they were both masked off to allow for the next step. I dribbled two different colors of mist across the card.   Then the mask on the poinsettia was removed and the poinsettia was colored with a SU! marker and a Copic marker.  Next, for a little added shimmer...some Wink of Stella marker.  Once that was dry the mask was placed back on the poinsettia (the sentiment mask has remained in place). 

Then using some embossing paste and a stencil, I added the "snow".  The panel was added to a card base using foam adhesive and done! 

There's a lot of sparkle on this card...here's a close up so you can see it:
