Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge

Wow, busy papercrafing weekend! Here is my entry for the Flourishes Timeless tuesday Challenge...make a Cristmas themed card. Challenge details can be found  HERE.

Paper:     SU Bashful Blue, Curious Iridescents White

Ink:         SU Bashful Blue reinker, SU Ballet Blue, Versa Mark, Craft White

Stamps:   Flourishes "Pointsettia and Boxwood", Flourishes "Christmas Music"

Other:      Spellbinders Classic Frame die, MS deep border punch "Garden Trellis",  SU Iridescent Ice EP, Stickles "Waterfall", "Say it in Pearls" flourish, SU embossing folder "Petals a Plenty".

Background papers:  Applied bashful blue ink to the raised surfaces of the petals a plenty EF and ran through the Big Shot. Stamped the sheet music stamp with versa mark and heat embossed with iridescent ice. Rubbed BB chalk lightly over the raised music to give it a little definition. Applied VM over the cut out ares of the frame , removed and heat embossed with II EP.

Pointsettias: These were made using the reinker method. I stamped the floweres with Craft white ink and embossed with clear EP. After spritzing the embossed paper with water you pick up some of the lightest blue ink using a waterbrush and touch the tip to the petal. The water moves the ink around. Repeat with the darker blue in other areas of the stamped image.

The trellis was inked up with VM and then heat embossed with the II EP. I wish the sparkle showed up better in the photo.

Have a great day!
