Aqua Pigments, Brutus Monroe, Christmas, Christmas Eve Embossing Powder, Create A Pointsettia, Florals, Stampendous, Water Colored CardsChristmas Eve Pointsettia November 11, 2018 CopyCatCards Isn’t this just beautiful?! If you look closely, you’ll see that the embossing powder has glitter in it! I received a container of Brutus Monroe’s Embossing Powder of the Month called Christmas Eve and it’s absolutely gorgeous! A beautiful deep red powder with bits of golden glitter! Naturally, I had to use my newest Stampendous stamp, Create A Pointsettia! As always, I began with a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock and stamped out the image with Versamark, then heat-set it with Christmas Eve embossing powder. Using my Aqua Pigment watercolor inks, I began to paint, adding layers and layers of color! I used just Red, Blue and Yellow, mixing colors to get the perfect shades. When the panel was complete and dried, I spattered droplets of water to get the cool reactive pattern which you can really see on the blue background! I left the larger berries white but filled in the smaller ones with Gold Nuvo Drops. My final step was to trim down the watercolor panel with Stitched Oval dies, then cut a larger oval of Glitterstock and adhered the two together. I mounted them to a simple off-white card base and decided to leave it as is, allowing the pointsettia to take center stage! I just love the added shine of the glitter in the Christmas Eve embossing powder! I may add a sentiment to the front, or just stamp one to the inside of my card. Thanks for visiting!
