Noel

A card similar but different from the card that I did for Iliana earlier this week. I like every card I do to be unique. I was asked how I did the card, so today at the end of this post I am also including a video for those who are interested.
Here is a close-up of this card detailing the sparkle and the layers of colour.
The background panel is a stencil mono-print. I have a link for this technique in my Awesome Tutorials section above. I used watercolour paper for the background and the poinsettia, which I did by laying down layers of colour. In order to do this technique a Misti is a must and you will see why in the video.



Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoy the video. Being new to doing them I can say I have much to learn, and I appreciate your support.

Thanks for sharing in this video. This is a gorgeous card and I love seeing how you add your color and details in the color. I enjoyed hearing your bird in the background. I thought it was something in my house and was accusing my cat of doing something.

I love how you stamped and watercolored your gorgeous poinsettia in non-traditional flower colors and all the glitter. Very striking and creative image with your monoprint background and design. TFS your card and your video my friend. I am off to check out your video. Happy Holidays. Hugs
