Woodware UK: Foiling with Sketch 27

Wow! The Woodware UK team is up to the 27th sketch, which you can see at left. My version provides me with the opportunity to start stockpiling holiday cards for this year. I fully intend to create a bunch of the card that I posted last week, but it's always fun to go off in a totally different this case, vintage.

I just received a jumbo box of Woodware goodies the other day, and I was so excited to open it up and play. I love these Christmas Post papers from Craftworks Cards. They come in 8 inch square pads, and having matching punch-out elements. I substituted the oval in the sketch for a few of these elements, which I sponged brown ink around the edges to make them pop.

My Dreamweaver Poinsettia panel was paste-embossed by mixing a small amount of Dreamweaver Glossy Red Paste
with a bit of black acrylic paint to tone down the brightness for that vintage look that I was going for. Once the paste was mostly dry, I rubbed gold foil over parts for some extra glitz without being "in your face". A little bit of glue marker around the edges of the Christmas Post Elements allowed me to add a touch of foiling there as well. I finished off the card with some Mark Richards crystals, Card Candi, and a sheer ribbon bow.

If you haven't been keeping track of this week's sketch creations, and you'd like more info on how to play along, be sure to visit the Woodware UK blog.
