Like Linda's beautiful fabric poinsettias, my Tattered Poinsettia (Tim Holtz die) was cut from crinoline. I spritzed with Goosebumps spray to act as a resist and when dry stained the layers with Distress stains in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, and Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive Distress inks. I highlighted the edges of the green leaves in Picked Raspberry ink. The center is a gem from my stash colored with Stickles in yellow and platinum. The Goosebumps didn't work so well to give good contrast to the stain (it worked well with Dylusions spray on my test piece), so I went back in with watered down white acrylic paint and my splatter brush.
Another card ticked off my list, and this one is going to be hand delivered to one of my local besties who adores pink and green. She lives a block away, and we met right after I had my boy/girl twins over 18 years ago. She saw my 6 ft. tall wooden storks a friend had erected in our yard, and she was expecting boy/girl twins herself. She brought over a tin of cookies and spent mornings with me to see how the "routine" was done. Eventually she baby sat for me while I took time to go to the gym in the early weeks. We've been best friends ever since. Our kids spent every holiday and birthday together and "helped" with our bi-annual yard sales until they hit high school, but now they've all gone in their own directions.
I'm sharing my card with the following challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenge #55-Anything Goes (with a die that Scrapy Land sells) I used 3 Sizzix dies.
