Sweet Stamps- Christmas Greenery

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Christmas Greenery.

 I created a card for this challenge by using a portion of an image-using the Poinsettia's- from the Poinsettia Candles and the image Jackie's Basket and Bow duo. I used the basket to add a little depth to the green cardstock for the background. 
  I stamped them using a Shades Spot and colored them with Copics.  I am on the road- and have supplies with me to create- and I forgot the black ink I generally use with Copics.  I was thrilled the waterproof Shades Spot worked beautifully with no running for me!
 I fussy cut the flowers, sniped into the leaves of the flowers for dimension and added Wink of Stella to the centers of the flowers and on the edges of the bow.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store:


We have a weekly challenge and a monthly technique challenge. The monthly challenge 7/15-8/14 is Parchment Crafting. Our winners are chosen by Random.org- and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2!
