Holiday Card Workshop - Day 4 - Card 1

Today's class was all about outline stamps and techniques for coloring them in.  I started looking through my stamps trying to decide what to do.  I wasn't really in the mood to use my Copics so I decided to go with a simple masking technique.  That morphed into this:


I cut the large poinsettia flower out of white panel and at the same time a piece of masking paper.  I then adhered the masking paper to the card base and sponged on Festive Berries Distress Ink.  Then I stamped over it with a music background stamp inked with Scarlet Jewel dye ink from Papertrey Ink.  When I removed the masking paper, there was a pretty poinsettia on the card base.  I thought about adding a sentiment and calling it a day, but at that point I just couldn't stop.  I really like it; I think it's my favorite so far.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
