I have a whole pad of this DCWV foiled paper and I aim to use it all for Christmas cards. Maybe. Who knows? I do know that this Poinsettia image with it’s beautifully scripted sentiment is precisely the sort I initially envisioned it with.
I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed in gold, then watercolored with Tombow markers. The particular watercolor paper I used is a scrap from somewhere, not the type I generally use. It has a ribbed texture with no smooth side, and it gave the gold embossing a funny jerky appearance that makes my eyes a little crazy. I’m going to call it an “interesting effect”. Note how smooth the sentiment is on a different type of paper.
This is a gorgeous set and I know you’ll love it as I do. I’ve already been coloring on it some more. In fact, I can’t seem to put these Christmas sets down and have more cards already made which I’ll be sharing later. For now, we’ll have a look at some Bloom Brigade inspiration:
I’ll be back with one more Christmas post tomorrow when the whole team gets together for a recap. Hope to see you then! Have a good day!
