Heartfelt Creations - Sparkling Poinsettia Candle

072715aPT (1)

Hello!   Happy Monday!   

Well - today is the end of my term at Paper Temptress!
I have totally loved my term and so grateful for everyone's support.    

And that brings me to the card I would love to share  with you today.    
I used a stamp called Sparkling Poinsettia Candle from Heartfelt Creations and some fabulous paper from Paper Temptress!


I colored the focal image on X-Press It.  This is my go to for all Copics and has been for about 6 months now.   I am totally addicted to the wonderful smooth texture and it makes blending so easy!
The image was matted on JellyBean Green 65# cardstock.   I use all my scraps to create leaves for my hand crafted flowers.  The 65# weight is perfect for molding flowers.
I used the negative space of my designer paper for a frame.  I reserved the actual mat I cut from this and will use it for matting a future card.
I used my all time favorite card base - Heavenly White 120#.
This cardstock is the perfect white for card bases and will allow a firm structure to hold multiple layers or
heavily embellished cards.

Copic Palette
R30, R63, R81, R83, R85, R89
G21, G28,
W1, W4
B21,B41, B23, B91

YG61, YG63

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful new week!
