Hi friends! Here I am with my homework for the Bonus Day we got last Saturday on the Holiday Card Workshop at Online Card Classes. Tle classes were about coloring, something I'm not very good at. But I did my best :)
This card is inspired by the amazing lesson from Kathy Racoosin. There's nothing that lady can't do with a marker and a white gel pen. Nothing.
I used a Hero Arts poinsettia and chose an unconventional color for it: shades of teal, one of my favorite colors. And well, I followed Kathy's instructions when coloring it with markers, but still I didn't get a stunning contrast in the shades. I guess it's a matter of practice :) Oh, and I can't believe I haven't a single holly outline stamp in my Christmas collection.
For the poinsettia center I used red stickles, and added a few white lines. Finished the card with a sentiment die cut with the Silhouette Cameo and heat embossed several times with red embossing powder. I love to do this!
Thanks for visiting!
