Guest Post by Georgina Ford - Christmas Postcard

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a great weekend. I'm delighted to bring you another guest post from Georgina Ford, of Designs by Georgina. Georgina is an ex-DT member & we're thrilled to have her back again for these guest posts, so without further ado, here's Georgina with today's project.............

I have a Christmas postcard to share with you today. The base is a That's Crafty White/Greyboard postcard available from Lisa B Designs. For the poinsettia flowers and leaves I used my Designs by Georgina Poinsettia Tag stamp. All available from Lisa B Designs.

I used some Red Starlights I had left on a tile to create the red card for the Poinsettia flowers. I added a lot of water to the Starlights and spread it all over the tile as shown below.

I then placed watercolour card onto the tile and pleased down. The Starlight was then transferred to the card.

Once the red card was dry I stamped my Poinsettia Tag stamp onto the card with a red Archival ink pad. I stamped as many Poinsettia flowers as I could fit onto the red card. For the leaves I stamped the Tag with Fern Green Archival ink pad and painted in the whole images with watered-down Green Starlights.

I cut out all the flowers. I added White Gold Starlight to the centre of the flowers with the end of a paint brush, as shown below.

I painted the postcard with a Topaz Starlights. I wanted to add some dimension and texture to the postcard in a co-ordinating colour. So I adding the Topaz Starlights to Diamond Sparkle Medium so I create a paste that was suitable to use through a stencil.

The stencils I used was my Designs by Georgina Blocks and Curves stencil.

Once the stencilled background was dry I attached the flowers and leaves to the postcard. For the leaves I used the flowers which I had stamped and coloured in green. I stamped the sentiment onto white card and attached it to the postcard. The sentiment is included with my Poinsettia Tag stamp.

To finish the postcard I added dots of Gold Starlights around the edge of the postcard with the end of a paintbrush, as shown below.
