Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
It’s time for the last challenge of this year at The Flower Challenge! The Theme for December is CHRISTMAS !!!
To start I stamped the Scarlet (40-861) on a watercolor paper panel in Distress inks. To stamp the poinsettia I used the Candied Apple and the pine needles and berries were stamped in Antique Linen. Next I watercolored the image and cut the panel using the circle die from the Jumbo Bauble (51-743) die set. I also cut the other elements from the die set and watercolored them and let them dry.
To create the colorful bright background I colored the slimline sized watercolor paper panel using Gansai Tambi watercolor in red, yellow and green as shown in the picture. After the panel was dry I cut it using the outline die from the Slimline Medley (51-718) die set and splattered white opaque ink on it. After the splatters were dry I foam mounted the background panel on a dark red slimline cardbase.
I cut the branch and berries of the Holly-days (51-741) die set from some watercolor paper, colored the berries in red and arranged them on the top of my card as shown. I tied the Jumbo Bauble (51-743) on the branch underneath some berries. The sentiment is from the Jolly Snippets (30-925) set.
To finish off the card I added a red rhinestone on the bow of the bauble and covered the berries with Glossy Accents.
I love how this turned out! The huge bauble is perfect for some holiday drawings !
Please note that there will be NO REMINDER post this month and the challenge will close early on the 15th December this time. Also there will be NO CHALLENGE in January this time too !
Wishing all The Flower Challenge fans a wonderful holiday season!
Thank you so much for all your love and support!
