Hello Lindy’s Gang. It’s Oleksandr Azarov here with you today, on the eve of the new year, and I have a tutorial on how to create this stunning greeting card.
First of all, I selected a watercolor paper cutting for the future postcard: light bulbs and twigs with stars.
Using gold powder Gimme Five Gold Detail EP for embossing, I stamped the poinsettia and orange slices on watercolor paper.
I randomly painted the bulbs with sprays : Rudolph’s Nose Red Shimmer Spray, Canna Lily Burnt Orange Shimmer Spray, Cattail Copper Brown Shimmer Spray, Golden Sleigh Bells Shimmer Spray and dried them thoroughly with a hairdryer.
I also painted the image of poinsettia and orange slices using the same spheres as for coloring the lamps. Blow dry and cut with scissors.
I covered the leaves and stars on the branches with embossing powder. I also added not much rust to the lanterns using Tin Roof, Rusted! Chunky EP.
I created the background using a stencil and embossing ink. I applied ink and powder through a stencil .
Now that all the elements are ready, we proceed to the assembly of the composition, for this, I used foam tape to add volume and airiness. As a final touch, I added congratulatory lettering, which I stamped using Gimme Five Gold Detail EP.
And now the card is ready.
