Happy Nov. 30th everyone!! I decided to work with one of the fabulous new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD winter images from the new mini sampler release called "Flower Cheer"! Isn't she just delightful? I love her fancy hair and beautiful bouquet of poinsettias in that wonderful Elisabeth Bell style! I chose to do her up in golds, creams and whites for an elegant holiday card. Wouldn't this be fabulous to give for a Christmas wedding as well?
My papers are the new holiday Anna Griffin (The Georgette Holiday Collection)--they are all golds and silvers and are fabulously beautiful! I saw them at summer CHA and just drooled, lol, and ordered them up as soon as I could. They make every project super elegant and some of the papers are glittered, so pretty! The poinsettias are from Petaloo here but they were too white for me, so I spritzed them up with Smooch Spritz in gold so they really shimmer prettily IRL! The centers of the poinsettias were bright yellow so I picked them off (lol) and added goldilocks Bella Baubles for the centers instead--yes I'm super picky and persnickety about the details of my cards, lol--can't help it!! I also spritzed the mini rosebuds with the gold spray as well to match.
The pretty border was done with a MS border punch on PTI's new colored cardstock (love it) called Fine Linen--I ADORE this color as it's darker than the usual cream but so pretty & a great match to the muted gold tones in the papers. The pretty tag/scrolly shapes on each side of my image are from Pink Paislee--they are called "Artisan Elements" & made of cream grungeboard and are so pretty to use. You can paint them, spritz them and color them if you'd like--they have adhesive on the back. I used one and cut it in half and placed 1 pc on each side of my image and added some gold Stickles for shimmer! The scrolls were made with a Marianne Designs die of course :)
And yep, "Flower Cheer" is colored with Copics (gold-YR24,YR23,Y15,Y11 and then E31 over them to brown them up a bit/hair-E59,YR23,E31,YR20/shirt & flowers-E43,E42,E40) I added stardust stickles (my fave) over her pants so they shimmer (hey a girl's gotta have some blingy pants). The center of the poinsettias have a dot of gold Stickles too. Then I stamped around the image with some of my PTI background stamps in gold ink.
Hope it gets you in a holiday sparkling kind-of mood today!!
