Blush Poinsettia

Thursday, March 20, 2014

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's a close up so you can see it:

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K.
Ink:  Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps:  Stampabilities (poinsettia) and Verve Joyous Noel (sentiment)
All the other stuff:  white embossing powder, heat gun, Lindy's Stamp Gang Clam Bake Beige mist, Lindy's Stamp Gang Cape Cod Coral mist, SU! Blushing Bride marker, Copic RV42, Wink of Stella marker, Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil, embossing paste, spatula, foam adhesive

  4. Lots of fun techniques from your class Lee-Anne. We are learning lots from you!! Love the snow embossing that was added - really gives the card so much amazing texture and depth. The poinsettia is so pretty ... interesting that you colored it with both SU! markers and Copics ... I didn't think they would work together. Have just ordered a Wink of Stella pen and can't wait to get it ... the sparkle is so pretty on your poinsettia! Loll xx
