This month's challenge from Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges is to make Anything But a Card and I've chosen to make a gift tag for a Christmas present.
Using the poinsettia from the Holiday Foliage rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, I stamped it twice so I could slightly offset one bloom on top of the base. I fussy cut both images out, but on the second one, I didn't cut out the leaves. Both images are colored with Copic markers and then I lightly sprayed the one without leaves with a permanent adhesive spray. Next, I added a small amount of Gypsy Red velvet glitter to sporadically cover the entire flower. It gives the whole thing a wonderful sparkle that the camera just doesn't capture well.
Palm Leaf flock was used on the leaves and Sparkle N Soft Mimosa was used for the center of the poinsettia. The tag was cut with a (very) old Sizzix die (tag crescent combo die). It was one of the original ones they came out with.
You have the whole month of July to decide what project you would like to enter. Be sure to check out what the rest of the designers did for even more inspiration.
