Wishing You Joy

Good morning!  I'm back with another stenciled Christmas card to share with you today.  This time I've used the beautiful Poinsettia Bling stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  Isn't that gorgeous?  I stenciled it with a dark red ink onto the dark red paper, but I wanted a little extra oomph.  So I pulled out my iridescent medium and a sponge and very lightly sponged over the inked areas on the stencil.  You can see the shimmer in the close up picture below.  

Once the shimmery medium dried, I wanted some pearls on the little dots, so I used Antique Rose Nuvo Crystal Drops for that 3D effect.  For the sentiment, I looked through all my Christmas stamps and I found this swirly sentiment that echoed the beautiful swirls in the stencil (Snowflake Serenade set from Papertrey Ink).  I stamped it with the same dark red ink and then I dabbed the iridescent medium over the stamp while it was in the MISTI and went over the sentiment again.  It's so shimmery and festive!

Head on over to A Colorful Life Designs to grab this Poinsettia Bling stencil.  You can whip out a bunch of Christmas cards in no time!  Be sure to use this code, HollyFan10, to save 10%.  Enjoy!
