Tuesday with Tara {take 263} negative space poinsettia

Happy Tuesday and happy September!  We are kicking off another month of daily challenges with our Random Acts of Cardness with today’s theme, Foliage.  I’m using “Poinsettia Pieces” by Tim Holtz, which I got after Christmas last year, paired with a sentiment by Gina K Designs.  I thought the foliage of the poinsettia could have a non-seasonal vibe if I avoided traditional colors.  By sticking to shades of green, this card has an almost tropical feel to it, though with a different sentiment it would be lovely for Christmas too.


Since these dies are designed to showcase the negative space, I wanted to play with color and some for the background behind them.  I sprayed a variety of Distress Stains & Distress Oxide Sprays in shades of green and blue on watercolor card stock, then splattered with some water and spritzed with Perfect Pearls. It’s a subtle variety of colors with a pretty shimmer to it!

I cut the panel just slightly larger than the white piece I’d cut the poinsettia pieces from, then glued them together and onto a black card.  It’s easy to keep the design simple when you are working with such pretty, intricate dies.

I hope you like my card and are ready for a new month of inspiration with Scrap ‘N Stamp!  Be sure to check out the challenge page on Facebook and play along, and plan to stop back here on the blog Friday for our September Blog Hop!

Hope to see you then!

Inky hugs,

Tara
