This card was my idea for my Christmas card! It took me a long time to find the right placement and color combo. I invested a lot of time in the design. Then on Oct. 6th my daughter was diagnosed with Pancreatitis. This is an unbelievable condition from which she is still recovering 4 months later! So, here is the Christmas card!
The background is Ellen Hutson's Twelve Days embossed in gold. The partridge, pear and sentiment are by Hero Arts from the Color Layering Partridge set.
This is a Technique Tuesday stamp called Fuschia. I stamped it with Ranger Archival Ink on Strathmoore Cold Press paper. I used Tombow Dual Brush marker ink and a waterbrush to color the image. This color combination in the real plant world is called "Dark Eyes" and was my mom's favorite fuschia. I added Pretty Pink Posh's sequins and droplets. The butterfly is from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the 'Burbs set. I used My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Die-Namics.
