Copper Christmas Floral

Just a quick post today to show a Christmas card I created, inspired by a number of challenges. I was inspired by the Winter Flowers and Foliage theme over at Daring Cardmakers, Christmas Florals and/or Greenery over at CAS Watercolour, flowers over at Jingle Belles, the colours over at Inspire Create and the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I stamped the (now discontinued) STAMPlorations Peace Love Joy Christmas floral, heat embossed it in copper and watercoloured the florals in Distress Ink (Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Pine Needles). I then stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations Holiday Sketches: Christmas candles and heat embossed in copper. Last, I splattered some inks and copper Gansai Tambi watercolour on the card. 

Card: Kraft card from my stash
Stamps: STAMPlorations Peace Love Joy, Holiday Sketches: Christmas candles 
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Versamark, Tim Holz Distress Ink Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Pine Needles, Gansai Tambi watercolour copper
Other: Papermania Copper embossing powder

Wonderful colour combination Karola!! The copper heat embossed outline with the red and green watercolour look amazing on the coloured base card. The splatters are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!
