Poinsettia Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

My 3rd and last post for today. If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here. :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Poinsettia Card:o)

This is a first Christmas/Winter themed card I made this year. I love this color combination and will make more cards using it for sure. :o)

To make this card I used stamps from two GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles stamp sets: a poinsettia flower from 'Christmas Blessings' and a sentiment from 'Winter Words'. :o)

How I made my card....

I stamped the poinsettia flower on a Kraft paper panel in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink.

I mixed a white tempera color with a bit of water and, using a paint brush, splattered the panel and left it dry on air.

While the panel was drying, I worked on the central poinsettia flower.

I stamped the poinsettia flower on a white watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using only one color: Distress Ink Ground Espresso. After drying, I fussy cut the flower, traced edges with a black marker and softened the flower with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

Then I stamped another poinsettia flower on a white cardstock paper scrap, colored it with a grey marker and fussy cut it, leaving a thin white border around the flower.

I glued the watercolored flower over the grey one. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

I wanted to add some dimension to my card, but currently I don't have any 3-D foam in my stash. Instead, I used the white cardstock paper scraps. I die cut 4 circles from scraps, glued them together (stacked them) and glued them on the back of the poinsettia flower. Worked perfectly!! :o)

Lastly, I heat embossed in white the sentiment on a black cardstock paper and cut the sentiment to stripes of desirable size. To make the sentiment pop a bit on the card, without 3-D foam, I glued each word stripe to a same size black stripe.

With all parts ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a white top folded card base, glued the poinsettia flower and sentiment stripes on the card. Lastly, I glued one more white paper panel inside the card to make it sturdier and my card was finished. :o)

I love how my card turned out!! :o)
