She's a Treasure

That would be the talented Treasure Oiler on Splitcoaststampers!!! Dawn is the featured stamper today, and I love her creations. Challenge rules dictate that you select one of the FS's projects to case and change two or more things. I've had this eggplant and silver color combo in my head for a few days using poinsettias, so Dawn's pretty Snowflakes card was the perfect chice for me. I changed colors and stamp sets.




The poinsettia image I used is from Gina K's A Year of Flowers as designed by Melanie Meunchinger. I stamped the image twice and colored it with Copic markers. I then cut out all the leaves from the extra image and added amethyst glitter to three of the lighter colored leaves. I then paper toled the poinsettia and finished the center off with a pink pearl. The silver leaves are also from this same stamp set that I stamped in silver ink onto brushed silver cardstock and heat embossed in silver. I love how they turned out! I cut out the leaves and arranged them behind the poinsettia.

The silver embossed larger snowflake in the background is from The Magic of Christmas, also by Gina K Designs, as designed by Rupa Shevde.

Here's a close up:



Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
