Peace - Joy on Earth

Yogi here today with an easel Christmas card using my other poinsettia stamp from Penny Black. Love doing these watercoloring type cards...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Peace"  also available on Quietfire Design HERE
I'm using a "Fill er Up" stamp and part of a sentiment stamp from  Quietfire Design  

Scored, and folded my dark green textured card, then die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" die set, slightly off the fold line  to create the easel (6"w x 4.25"h easel closed)


Stamped the poinsettia (Penny Black "Red Star") using my Misti and various Distress colors, misted with water and stamped, then used a damp paintbrush to blend the colors. Dried. Used a Derwent Inktense dark brown watercolor pencil in between the petals to highlight the shadows. Blended with the paintbrush. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" die set, sponged around the edges with a dirty brown sponge.

Die cut a slightly larger stitched oval from the dark green cardstock, then painted it with Acrylic daubers "Mowed Lawn", dried and adhered the poinsettia layer on to it then onto the card front.

On the floor: Stamped the "Joy" using Distress Picket Fence and embossing with White embossing powder. Colored the letters, partially with a white Prisma colored pencil to lay a foundation on the dark green, then with a light green or red pencil. Blended using a Lyra Splendor Blender pencil.

Stamped the "On Earth", masking the rest of the stamp, inking with the white and embossing with the white embossing powder.

Die cut the "Peace" (on Quietfire Design HERE) from white cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. Adhered to a scored piece of dark green cardstock to act as my stopper.
