Poinsettia Flourish

Happy Friyay people!

It’s ridiculously hot here in the UK but I’m powering on with my Christmas in July cards!

For today’s card, I used a gorgeous Memory Box die and my current favourite product – Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze. After colouring the petals, I added some Nuvo Aqua shimmer to the petals before applying the glaze – I just can’t seem to capture the shimmer on camera, unfortunately. It’s really interesting to watch the colour lighten as the glaze dries – the petals were coloured with dark red but clearly I must remember to make my colours evendarker before applying the glaze in future! The sentiment is by CAS-ual Fridays.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (both red, white and/or blue), the CAS Christmas challenge (poinsettia) and the CAS-ual Fridays challenge (heat embossing).

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Oh, Lucie!!!! This is stunning!! I’m not sure how dark the red was before the glaze was added, but I think it looks beautiful. Especially next to the gold heat embossed sentiment! Thank you for joining us for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!!
