Morning! I’ve a Christmas card to share today and also a peek at how I change up the Wild Orchid Crafts lilies to look like poinsettias. Okay, so originally this started out as a card for a man, but then the flowers crept in, then I added pearls and well, now it’s not!
I love this Mr Frosty stamp, soooo cute!
Copic colours used:
White: C3, 1, 0, 00
Hat: E27, 25, 21
Birds/Jumper: E43, 42, 41, 40
Red: R46, 35, 14
Turquoise: BG75, 72, 70
Leaves: YG67, 63, G20
A close up of the transformed lilies.
I pulled them apart, used a large ball tool on the back to shape then reattached using strong glue. I finished off with a pearl in the middle. The poinsettias on this card were the first I made, subsequent ones I have cut buts out of the sides (as in the picture below) to give a more realistic look. You can also dab a bit of green ink in the centre and tips (again which I have done with subsequent flowers that I have made using the lilies)
To get the seam binding so crinkled I wet and scrunched up tight and left it overnight to dry, This really makes it super crinkly
