Gina K Challenge #2 - December

I've finally had the time to sit down and work on the challenges from Gina's release party last night. Theresa's challenge was to use paper for your embellishment. You had to use one of these techniques in a card, layout or 3-D item.

Torn Paper
Dry Embossing

As you can see from the card I choose pierching and piecing. I cut out each of the poinsettia images and layered them on top of stamped images. The center one has one extra layer. Each of the flowers is sculpted using the large ball of my empressor stylus. I added depth of each of the petals with my Prismacolor markers and sponging Pretty in Pink on the edges. The piercing on the oval was done free hand. I used the oval nestabilities to cut the oval for the sentiment. I put it all together then added some yellow Stickles to the center of the flower and cotton candy Stickles to the petals of the center flower. Then I decided to finish the inside as well using one of the extra flowers I had stamped. The green here is also pierced to match the front.
