Floral Christmas with Ike's World

     Today we start a new challenge at Ike's World and our theme is this beautiful photo inspiration.  Let us know what inspired you.  I was moved by the florals and the red colors and used Ike's "Poinsettia Cluster" image.


     Here's my card:

     I printed the image directly onto some digital paper, then colored the leaves with ivy green ProMarker.  The green ink on the red paper made the leave look almost black gave it the feel of a silhouette image.  I added gold paint to the centers of the flowers with a teeny-tiny, spotter brush.

     I cut a strip of white CS and used a Darice embossing folder to do the sentiment, then added it to the bottom of the card front.  This is a very Clean and Simple design which will mail easily.


     Please come play in our challenge at Ike's World.  We're looking forward to seeing what you will make.  And don't forget, Ike always has a freebie you can use if you want.  Then, later today (Tuesday), I'll have a post featuring the first of the December release sets from MHK Designs.  Be sure to come back and see what we're offering.  There will be a new release each day this week, through Saturday.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
