Hello there crafty friend!
Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie sharing inspiration for the November Build Your Holiday Stash Challenge in the Unity Show & Tell. Today I have a card featuring the gorgeous, newly released Vintage Poinsettia stamp!
Vintage for me almost always means kraft card stock is required. Copic coloring on kraft gives the image muted tones which I also think has a nice vintage vibe. A bit of distressing around the edges with some Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress ink along with distressed edges from a pair of scissors or a paper distresser completes the vintage look.
To give the card a bit more dimension I stamped two poinsettias. I colored just the middle and smallest part of the flower on the one that was my top layer. And then I colored the biggest bottom part of the flower on the other stamped poinsettia giving the middle petals just a bit of color because the outer edges would be visible once the top layer was popped up with foam tape.
Here’s a quick list of the Copic markers I used to color up this beautiful poinsettia on kraft card stock:
Red ~ R20, R14, R37, R59
Green ~ YG11, G24, G46
Yellow ~ Y06, Y15, Y28
I fussy cut both portions of the poinsettia. Cleaned up the edges by coloring them with black marker and popped up my top layer with foam tape. I adhered all my layers onto a kraft A2 top fold card base. And to finish it off, I added some Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer to the center of the poinsettia along with a few dots of white gel pen.
