Season's Greetings ....

.... Good evening! It's been a busy week and I've only just had chance to play in my craft room.  I've a simple Christmas card to share with you this evening:

Stamps: Dare 2B Artzy - Poinsettia Tangle
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; SU - Poppy Parade; Gina K - Soft Stone
Dies: D2BA - Poinsettia Tangle; Die-namics - Circle S1 #10, Skinny Strips
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Poppy Parade; SU Vellum - Botanical Gardens; Clear Embossing Powder; Copic Markers

I'm submitting this card to Christmas 24:Challenge - X24#02 where Anything Goes, Colour Throwdown - CTD#578, and Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#420.

I've had these stamps from Dare 2B Artzy for a while, but this is the first time I've inked them up to make a card.  I really like the tangle patterns in the flower.  I stamped the flower and holly leaves on white card, coloured with Copic markers, put the image back into the MISTI and restamped using Versafine ink and then clear heat embossed.  I find colouring the image first and then restamping gives a really crisp, clean image.  I used the co-ordinating dies to cut out the image.  I stamped the simple sentiment on white card and used a die to cut it out.  I cut a circle of subtly patterned vellum as a background for the images.  I adhered them all flat to the card.  On the inside, I cut a mat layer of red card and on the white panel stamped another poinsettia, off to the side, and added a greeting.

I took a closeup of the poinsettia so that you can see the lovely patterns.  That's all for this evening, I'm off downstairs to have a much needed cup of coffee.  See you soon.
