Anything Christmas

Well another fortnight has flown by and it's time for another CRAFT-ROOM CHALLENGE. The challenge has been chosen by the lovely Julia and she has chosen Anything Christmas.
I decided to make a card using one of my oldest and much loved stamps. I started of by matting some gold card onto a red card blank and on top of this I matted a piece of patterned paper that I'd distressed the edges leaving them white. I then attached a piece of gold net across the centre. The poinsettia was stamped twice onto white card and I coloured the petals with watercolour pencils and water brush. I distressed the edge of one of the images and coloured with vintage photo Distress ink, the image was then matted onto gold card and attached to the card blank. I cut out some of the petals on the spare image and 3D them onto the main image then I added some gold beads. The sentiment is a pre-made one, I distressed the edge and coloured with vintage photo then attached it to the card. The last thing was to add a few gold gems.

The poinsettia stamp is by PSX.

Why not pop over to the Craft Room challenge blog to look at the rest of the samples that the talented DT have made and don't forget to be eligible for the prize you need to put the Craft Room logo into your side bar with a link to the Craft-Room.
