When I started out this morning I thought I would get a few things done. Little did I know that casing Kristina’s pull out card would become my life’s work!
I am hoping that the Queen of England is on my Christmas card list, because nothing less than royalty is worthy of this card after the number of hours put into it.
Nothing really went wrong in the construction, it just has a lot of steps. By the time, I got to the point of painting the poinsettia, my hands were shaking with nervousness. It is rather hard to watercolour small images when your hands are shaking.
All is well in the end, as I liked the result.
Besides blood, sweat and tears, Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia Swirl stamp set, Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Season stamp set, Strathmore Bristol cardstock, Hero Arts acetate, Stazon ink, Versafine ink, Zig Real Brush Markers, Bo Bunny Glitter Paste, Wink of Stella glitter pen, Unknown black glitter paper, Neenah 110 lb cardstock and Scor tape.
Sandra has found a few minutes between hockey games to make a card for this challenge.
The challenge is to use the suggested colours on the card entry. Here is the chart of colours to be used:
Now here is how Sandra took those colours and created a “delightful” and yet “frightful” card:
Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Memento Ink, Pattern Paper (Recollection), Cardstock (Xpress It and Bazzill), Stamp Set (Lucky Dog and My Minds Eye) and 1” punch.
