All hail Queen Stef, our chosen Queen for the Day this Friday past. I'm just now getting a chance to case one of her cards and combining it with today's Technique challenge to Spray It. Congratulations, Stef, and thanks for all you do as one of the Inspiration challenge hostesses!
Stef has so many magnificent cards in her gallery. It took me a while to settle on which one I wanted to case. I chose this beautiful Peace on Earth card of Stef's to case. I love the turquoise color with a hint of green.
I first white embossed the flourish stamped bg onto white card stock. For my Spray It technique, I mixed Tumbled Glass reinker with Interference Blue Perfect Pearls and Shabby Shutters reinker with Perfect Pearls Perfect Copper and sprayed them on.
I die cut my poinsettia out of vellum card stock and sponged the Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress inks onto them for color. I used a Versamark pen to outline the poinsettia base and leaf and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder.
My sentiment is part of a larger Rubbernecker sentiment that reads: Wishing You the Hope, the Joy, and the Wonder of Christmas. The rest of the sentiment is stamped on the inside. I stamped the Wishing You with Versamark and heat embossed it with brown embossing powder.

Very pretty Charlene. Blue & white is always so pretty together, but I love the look when you put it with the copper.
