Hello and Happy Monday, friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in red! Actually red isn’t my favorite color but I tend to make holiday cards in red and I always loved the results 🙂 ! For today’s card I used the Poinsettia Bouquet stamp set with the gorgeous large poinsettia cluster image.
I started off by making a red ombre watercolor panel. I colored a watercolor paper in Alizarin Crimson and Merlot Color Burst powders. I first applied clean water on a A2 sized watercolor paper panel and started watercoloring from one end of the panel diluting the color while moving towards the other side.
After the panel was dry I white heat embossed the Poinsettia Bouquet on the panel. To add some definition to the image I added more red (the same colors I used to make the background panel) to the darker area of the petals and lifted the color from the tip of the petals by dabbing with a paper towel after applying clear water to the area.
I trimmed the colored panel a bit and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. I then added the tag in black and white on the colored panel using foam tape.
The die cut sentiment was cut using the Many Sentiments Holiday die set. I cut the words four times from some white cardstock, layered them and colored the top of it in some red Copic markers. I adhered the sentiment on the tag and scattered some Glass Slippers sequins to finish off the card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed looking my card 🙂 !
Have a wonderful week!
