Festive Frame


Today I have a card to share that uses Melanie's new Festive Frames stamp set. This is the first card I made with this set. I remember when I first saw this set I fell in love with it but was not sure what to do with it. Have you ever had that happen? So whats the best way to get started? By inking it up and going with the flow. Exactly what I did. I inked it up with rich cocoa ink and stamped it on White pl paper, and this is what evolved.
I colored everything with copics. The poinsettia's were stamped and colored again, then cut out and popped up. I water colored with my handy Sakura glitter pen to give them sparkle and added pearls the the centers. I also added glitter to the berries. I wish I would have just used my glitter pen because I think that is too much glitter for the little guys and completely covers them.
I decided I wanted to stamp my linen background stamp over the frame but did not want the linen in the center of the frame so I stamped the image on a separate piece of paper and cut out the center to use for my mask. The linen was stamped with Blush Blossom. I stamped the sentiment in the center and decided to add some shading so I used the frame part from the paper I cut the center out of to mask everything but the center...are you following me?

I sponged blush blossom and pretty in pink in the center.

I matted the frame on Chocolate Kiss and for the base I used Fresh Asparagus and stamped my linen background on that using Bamboo leaves ink.
Whew! I think that's it!

Have a terrific rest of your evening!
