Platypus Creek Digitals - #16 Pearls and Lace

Good Morning!  I'm back with yet another post - making four in less than 24hrs.  But sometimes that happens with Design Team Schedules I guess.  My poor blog doesn't know what has hit it.

This morning sees a new challenge at Platypus Creek Digitals and the theme is Pearls and Lace.



I have created my card using the beautiful poinsettia image from Platypus Creek Digitals.  I have repeated the image across my background and printed onto glossy card.  Taking a white crayon I have traced around some of the outlines of the image to create a resist.  I then sponged red and green ink across the design and once complete rubbed off the crayon with a dry cloth.  I simply then added some pearls to the center of the flowers and layered my Peace Love and Joy sentiment over some lace and mounted onto a dark green base card.

I love how effective this crayon resist technique can be.

Here's another card I created using this same image and method.



Sadly this is my last post as a member of the Platypus Creek Design Team but after much thought I have decided not to sign on for another term.   I wish Tracey and the Team all the best for the future!
