Linda's tag for the 9th week of the challenge was so beautiful and elegant. I loved the black and gold combination. I'm a real traditionalist with most things, and especially the holidays, but I do like to shake things up a bit within a traditional style. Here is what I took as inspiration from Linda's tag.
I started with my usual 5x7" watercolor paper and painted it with Black Soot DP. Once it dried I used a Prima stencil and embossing ink to make the corner decoration. I embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then used another piece of watercolor paper and stamped the sentiment in embossing ink and used the same embossing powder. I fussy cut it and used foam tape to apply it to the page. The edges of the page were embossed also. The white poinsettia was in my stash. Here are some details.
I think this is such an elegant combination. I was so thrilled when I saw Linda's tag because a few days before I had thought about doing a black and gold tag!! As I mentioned to Linda in an email, sometime serendipity can be found everywhere!
Thank you so much for visiting with me. We're almost at the end of this challenge even though I'm behind in my posting. I hope all your holiday plans are moving along smoothly. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the season!
