CARD DETAILS

If you follow my blog and Youtube channel you might have seen these two projects I shared in September using WPlus9 newest Christmas Rose Bouquet set. I adore this large floral cluster and find it a perfect one for creating extra special Christmas cards.

Today I wanted to share a simpler, easier to make version of the two projects I posted on my blog earlier. I started working on this card by heat embossing the bouquet image from the Christmas Rose Bouquet set onto WPlus9 Coal Mine cardstock in Platinum embossing powder. I also added a heat embossed “Joy” from the Hand Lettered Holiday set. I usually prefer to use Gold embossing powder (or Antique Gold), but since I was using grey paper for my background I decided to switch things up as bit and went with Platinum powder instead.

This time I decided to use Prismacolor pencils (I wanted to try using other pencil colors and since I have a full 150 set of Prismacolors I picked this brand of pencils for my project, although I prefer to use Polychromos pencils from Faber Castell) and did very basic, beginner coloring. If you actively follow WPlus9 blog you might remember some of the pencil colored projects I shared in September – Emerald Leaves Background and Indigo Leaves Background.

I made note of the colors I used in case you’d like to CASe this project.

  • Greens: Chartreuse & Limepeel; Prussian Green & Dark Green
  • Reds: Permanent Red, Crimson Lake & Dark Purple
  • Whites: Peach Beige & White
  • Grays: 70% Warm Grey & 50% Warm Grey

Once my coloring was done I outlined the image with a 70% warm grey pencil and blended it out with a 50% warm grey. Next, to smooth out and soften the gray coloring I went over it with a pencil eraser and erased a lot of the pencil.

I trimmed my panel to 4 x 5 ¼”, inked the edge with embossing ink and heat embossed it with same Platinum embossing powder. Finally, I foam mounted my panel onto an A2 Coal Mine cardstock panel.

    1. Gorgeous!! You never cease to amaze me with your work. You always take it to the next level. Love the platinum on the grey. I think that it makes the colours stand out more. And beautiful colouring.

    1. This is absolutely stunning in grey Yana. This is such a gorgeous stamp and your colouring has brought it to life. I have got to get some pencils to try this. Wonderful job!

    1. I can’t remember the last time I said this – that is one of the most beautiful cards I’ve ever seen. Absolutely spectacular with the bright colors and unexpected dark background. Love, love, love it!
