This week, Linda has challenged the team to ‘Get Sentiment-al’.
Let’s take a look at my project:
Here’s a closer look:
And an even closer look (LOL):
I decided to do something a little different, this time and created something a little more CAS than my usual style. I stamped the poinsettia image from Winter Blooms multiple times over my card stock panel using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured the poinsettias using Copic Markers in a fuchsia colour. I usually am not a big fan of pink (unless for a baby girl) but, I just LOVE how the poinsettias turned out! Something a little different than I’d usually go for and it creates such amazing graphic POP with the black outlines and the white background! However, I still wanted to let the sentiment take centre stage so, I stamped the sentiment, which is from Christmas Classics, onto piece of vellum using Versamark and heat-embossed in gold. Then, I cut the sentiment out using a flag die. By embossing the sentiment in gold and by making the poinsettia panel a sort of background, I think I was able to make the sentiment stand out. After attaching the sentiment flag, I added some tiny gold beads to the centres of the poinsettias for extra detail and interest. Finally, I attached the panel to my card base and added a touch of my favourite embellishment – gold twine!
