Peaceful Poinsettia 36

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, October 13, 2010 @ 12:50 AM | , ,

Hi There! Hope you are all having a great week so far! We're half way to the weekend already - YAHOOO!!! I had some "me" time, so I made this Holiday card.
I inked up one of the smaller Poinsettia images from Big Blooms - Poinsettias with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it a few times. Using the Copic markers shown in the photo below, I colored both images then paper pieced, layering one on top another to add a lil' dimension. I was playing around with my sewing machine and tried a new stitch (the black one), only to find I do not like it but the damage was done :( Won't make that mistake again! The lil' tag was stamped with a sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet & the lil' motif is from Very Vintage Labels No. 1
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Kazan's awesome sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. Kazan, Laura & the entire DT offer amazing inspiration week after week! If you are interested in joining an amazing DT, I recommend you visit their site (click HERE)! They are currently searching for a few new designers to join their team!
These are the various Copic Markers used:
That's all I have for today - Thanks for visiting! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms - Poinsettias, Nutcracker Sweet Very Vintage Labels No. 1 
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ S4-293 Lacey Circles, S4-081 Tags Five, GC-001 Grand Calibur

A perfect take on the sketch and all the DP you've used are gorgeous. It's lovely to see how you combine them. ( You've got a great taste :) )
And the flower....I am immpressed. I am not into Copics myself ( that definitely would become a new addiction...)but I love to look at something so perfectly colored as this.

Jessica said...

I think the stitch would look better with a little less tention on the bobbin, and maybe a little bigger. There's my 2cents worth :)
I love the card, including the stitching! Thanks for the inspiration.

AimeeOh said...
