I have another Christmas card to share with you today, to participate in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, here is my card.
The image is from a Power Poppy stamp set called Poinsettia by Marcella Howley, such beautiful images and sentiments on this set. I stamped it onto Canson water color paper and colored with my SU markers in Olive Green, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, More Mustard, (the combination of So Saffron and More Mustard allows you to make a beautiful golden tone), Real Red and River Rock, the top of the stocking was colored with my white Prismacolor pencil and shaded with the Black. I cut the banner and fussy cut the bottom of the stocking. I use a couple of pieces of the gorgeous SU Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack for the top and bottom and I cut a strip of the gold part from a piece of scrap to accent the banner, I just couldn't waste this small piece. The sentiment is from SU teeny Tiny Wishes , I heat embossed in gold.
I hope you like this card, leave me your comments and questions, if you have any, I will be happy to answer them.
This is the sketch that inspired this card. I hope you give it a try.Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
