September Rudolph Day

 I've used the Penny Black Poinsettia stamp for the basis of this card. I actually stamped and water coloured the stamp a few months ago but wasn't inspired as to how to use it until now. I cut one of the images in half and put it behind. I added some CC spectrum glitter pen to the edges in green and the centre in red. I used a CC embossing folder and and then coloured with spectrum aqua tints, sponging gold aqua tint and then gold embossing wax over the of the wording. I cut a little of the wording off the embossed base and used it to make the sentiment.
Here's a close up which catches the gold better.
Of course I made this for Mo's Rudolph challenge - not many to go now and I really need to step up Christmas card production!

What a gorgous card with the beatiful PB poinsettia against that fabulous embossed background. Thanks for joining in the fun over at Rudolph Days xx

Gorgeous! Using the words from the background as a sentiment is a neat trick, I think I have quite a few papers that would work that way

This is a truly beautiful card. I love the image and beautiful colouring! That embossed background looks great and you had such a brilliant idea to trim off a word for the sentiment.

Thanks for taking part in my September Rudolph Days Challenge.
