The Flower Challenge #63 Christmas

Hi there crafty friends, I can't believe it's December already, where has the time gone? Anyway we have another challenge for you over at 'The Flower Challenge' and our theme is 'Christmas' !

Our talented Guest Designer this month is the fabulous Stef Perry, our winner for July. See her gorgeous card on our blog, along with my teamies glorious creations also ;)

I hope you are all ready for the big day now, presents bought and wrapped, cards made and no me neither !

Come and see what I made for our challenge below and enjoy your day whatever you have planned !

ps. See previous page if you missed my latest mousie makes ;)

Love this beautiful flower stamp, I did a loose water colour edge part  using a rectangle stencil, then added my flower spray using silver embossing and finally my sentiment. I water coloured my flower and leaves, stamped the wording added a few clear sequins and job done!

Penny Black Christmas Blush stamp
Penny Black Christmas Greetings sentiment
Wow silver E/P
Gina K Amalgam ink Obsidian
TH distress inks
N&T clear sequins

I loved this card so much I decided to make another one very similar, I am sending these to my dear sister in laws as I am sure they will appreciate them both ;) The stamping on the wording wasn't great but I went over it in black pen after I took the pics.

I decided to make us all new FC watermarks too, here is my first use of mine above ;) I think it looks clearer, hope you approve.

You have until the 25th December to enter our challenge, 
please add our cue card below when entering.

Vivien, I wanted to create my card for the challenge using silver embossing powder but I didn't have any so I used the Pearlescent one instead, your flowers look amazing with the silver outline, and the coloring is spectacular as always.
The sentiment is beautiful and true.
I want to wish for you and your family a beautiful Holiday Season and all the best for 2022.
Stay healthy and safe.

Both cards are absolutely beautiful with great 'water colouring'. Extra loving how you did the partial stencilling framing Viv on one of the cards x. Loving the watermark too x.

Beautiful coloring, Viv. I love how the border frames the sentiment on the first card.
