SSCB #25 - Happy Holidays!!

Here we are again for the new Serendipity Stamps challenge- this week the challenge is to make a "shaped" card!!!

Now, I will say mine is not a very creative shape, AND I had other ideas originally- but, I really wanted to color up this  Poinsettia Basket image and didn't think ahead! After they were colored and it was time to add the shape...this is the only shape that I had to accommodate! BUT- Aren't they gorgeous!! All the fine detail in the image is fabulous!! I stamped mine with Memento Tuxedo black onto XPress It blending CS and colored with copics. Added some gold pearls in the centers for a little bling. Tried adding bows {at the top, on the side.... didn't work...} This poinsettia basket just wanted to SHINE on its' own :-)

Did stamp the inside with a another Serendipity image... Holly with Frame and Happy Holidays sentiment!!

Hope you find time to join us, and...

Hi Vickie! The poinsettia flowers are gorgeous the way you colored them. So vibrant! Perfect shape for this beautiful stamp.

Marisa said...

Your poinsettias are STUNNING, Vickie!! Fabulously coloured and love the black for contrast against the red. Gorgeous card.

Jenny Gropp said...

Great shading on the flowers and basket! Love how you mimicked the ribbon on the card and image, really makes it come together nicely! No need for a bow on this... but I always try too!!

Miriam said...

LOVE how you tied in the ribbon in the image with the ribbon on the card Vickie! The inside looks excellent too!

Karen Amidon said...

Vickie, another BEAUTY! Love, love, love the ribbons, they really make your image pop! Your coloring is fabulous on this gorgeous stamp. Of course the little touch of the gold "bling" makes it shine!
