just sharing...


Hello!!  Thought I would pop in and share a card that I made awhile ago, but never posted.  I used the Penny Black Red Star stamp and the technique that I used on this card and this card.  I love how this card turned out.  I used four different distress markers for the poinsettia:  Dried Marigold, Barn Door, Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry.  The pine sprigs were colored with two different distress markers:  Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint.  I started out coloring the stamp with the Dried Marigold blending it out with clean water.  I then layered on the Barn Door and Fired Brick blending then out with clean water.  The Picked Raspberry was only added in certain areas to add some depth and to provide a more of a shadow.  Once I was done with the main image I added some yellow to the center using Squeezed Lemonade and Scattered Straw.  I also added some Scattered Straw around the outside of the image and then distressed the entire piece with Old Paper and Vintage Photo distress inks.  Some Diamond Stickles were also added for some sparkle, but you can't really see it in my photo. The sentiment is also from Penny Black, but I don't know which set!! I stamped that in VersaFine Onyx Black after everything was done.  I'm going to add this to the current Flower challenge of anything goes.
Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Red; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  Ranger Distress inks, markers, VersaFine Onyx Black; Diamond Stickles
