Here is this month’s sketch.....
designed by Lisa Tottle...thanks Lisa for a great sketch.

Here is my take on Lisa's sketch...
Swirly Poinsettia Christmas Card   
4x6 card 
out of Kraft card stock
along with Fab Scraps Star Sparkles paper.
Died my seam binding red to highlight the 
red in the center image.

Swirly Poinsettia

I die cut the "swirly poinsettia" Die~Namites Dies
out of white card stock.
Covered it with multi-medium matte to 
hold the inner pieces together to
create a solid die cut.
Painted the die cut using 
Viva Precious Metal Colour-Mother of Pearl
I put a few coats on, heat set and added 
a little center cut out of a piece 
Fab Scraps paper.

Here is a close up of the texture.
Created using a stencil and gesso
along with the Precious Metal effects...

Hope you all play along with our Sketch Challenge!
Happy Holidays
