Merry Christmas

Hello there once again today...I just had to make a card for Just Add Ink #224 - Just Add Christmas in July,  this week with this gorgeous photo for inspiration.  I decided to go with the poinsettia and to colour it cream...well that really goes against the grain because they are magnificent red usually... anyway I used my Distress Inks to colour it - mixing to get the shade I wanted and rough cut it out to expose the background. For the background I versamark stamped the flower image and dusted it with Inference Gold Pearl. A simple sentiment and a few gems to finish the card.
Thanks for taking a peek Robyn


  1. This is a lovely card, Robyn. The rich red background, with the beautiful dusting of gold, really sets off the focal image. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. Lovely Robyn. The soft gold stamping on your background is very pretty. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  3. Great Christmas Card. I agree that the background technique is wonderful and perfect for Christmas cards. Chantell JAI
