STAMPlorations Inspiration Post #49

Hello!  I hope today finds you all well and happy?!  It's time for another STAMPlorations Inspiration post and I hope you'll come on over to the blog and check out the DT's cards.  If you want, you can CASE a card and link up too!  CASE one of our cards from today's post or from posts #46#47 or #48.  You can also CASE Suchi's card from the CASEplorations post.  If you do, you could win a prize!  Check out my inspiration card...

(All stamps by STAMPlorations)

I stamped the pointsettia (Christmas Bell Medley set, Dee's Arsty Impressions line) in black and coloured them with my Spectrum Noir markers (DR1, DR7, FS6, True Black). I coloured the background in with my black SN marker.  Rather than make a straight edge I decided to go with a curved one for interest.  I went along that edge after with a gold gel pen.  I added some gold dots with the gel pen to the centers of the flowers as well.  I stamped the holly leaf (from same set) in Delicata gold ink masking where I needed to.  I did the white dots with a white gel pen.  I stamped the sentiment (Holiday Sketches: Christmas Flower set), bending it to follow the curve, in black.  I attached my panel to my card base with some foam dots.  I really like how this turned out.  It's rather dramatic.  :-)

Well, I hope you come on over to the STAMPlorations blog for a visit and maybe link up a card.  Definitely, check out the awesome projects by the rest of the DT.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
