Hello Fellow Bloggers, Friends and Visitors,
My card for tonight was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts. For this I have used their lovely poinsettia stencil which can be used as a Christmas poinsettia or pretty Spring or Summer flowers, a very versatile stencil and useful to have in your crafty stash.
My base card is a ready creased white card and when folded makes a 7"x7" base card. Matt a piece of dark green card onto this base card, leaving a small border of the white showing. Take a piece of light blue card, smaller than the green. Take the poinsettia stencil and lay this on top of the blue card and press down, (you could run over the surface of the stencil with a brayer or, you could run it through an embossing machine. Remove the stencil. The Versamark should now have transferred to the blue card.
Cover the card with clear embossing powder and heat emboss using a heat gun. This makes the light blue card look much darker and of course, reverses the poinsettia pattern, so the background is coloured and not the poinsettias.) Matt this onto the green card.
Take some acetate and lay the stencil onto it and spread the diamond Sparkle Medium over it, using a metal spatula, (this time, it is the poinsettias which get covered and not the background.) Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.
Cut out each individual poinsettia and glue the centres to the embossed blue card. Lift up each petal by putting a small amount of silicone glue under each one. Leave to dry.
When dry, add a drop or two of the green Detail Sparkle to each flower stencil.
Who says "blue and green should never be seen' lol!! I think they look good together, after all, blue and greens are always seen in nature !! That's all from me for the moment, catch you all in a few days time, in the meanwhile have a good Thurs/Fri, then it's the weekend again ! whoopee and the weather is supposed to be getting better then.
Love and rainbows,
Happy crafting, Hugs Jennifer xx.
