I started out by using a sheet of red and white plaid paper (it's older in the Lawn Fawn lineup, and we no longer carry it.) I used a maroon ink and a blender brush to darken the edges and tone down the plaid. I love that the background carries just a hint of a pattern this way. Before continuing onto next steps, I splattered white paint onto the red background.
I then cut out the poinsettia and leaves, as well as sprigs from Large Wreath and Spring Sprig. I played with the composition until I felt like it was full but not too busy, and added the line border sentiment at the bottom.
I hope you like it! There's more to see on the LF blog this morning - click!
