Blue Flowers for Christmas

Hello dear frends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Blue Flowers for Christmas and flowers for everything! I love the stamps of Kennedy Grace Creations because they have an amazing collection of flowers and they are my favorites!  Today I have a project to share with you using the Grace's Little Note stamp set. Take a look at my card:

 
This is not a Christmas stamp set but with a little of creativity you can make whatever you want. And this is what I made. I just decided to stamp one of the flowers included on the stamp set Grace's Little Note with Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder over Basic Black Cardstock and melted the powder. I tried not to connect the flowers so since I stamped one by one it was very easy to remove the powder when I didn't want to connect the flowers.

 
Then using Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils I colored each flower. In this opportunity I went with the blues and greens. I used two different blues and two different greens, but depending of your colors and the color of your cardstock you can experiment other tones.

 
When I was satisfied with the coloring I resized the layer and pasted over a whisper white card base and die cut the word Joy using black fun foam and Gold/Gold Rinea Foiled Paper. I pasted the black fun foam behind of the paper foiled just to give more dimension to the word and then I pasted the word directly over the card. 

The Gold Embossing Powder of the flowers and the Gold of the Rinea Foiled Paper of the die cut word gave to the card the perfect shine for the season and another advantage of using this technique is that you can retouch the intensity of the colors until have the tone that you want. 

I hope my project inspires you to experiment new ideas with your flowers and use new or older techniques that are always fun. I wish you a very happy and blessed thanksgiving day and enjoy my flowers for Christmas!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
