Flourishes Friday Blog Hop – Get Sentiment-al!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Flourishes Friday Blog Hop. If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

This week, Linda has challenged the team to ‘Get Sentiment-al’.

Let’s take a look at my project:

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!
