Hi there,

we are starting a new Christmas Challenge over on the Happy Little Stampers Blog and this time the optional twist is "Poinsettia":

  • stamp the poinsettia from the Docrafts First Noel Poinsettia set with Versamark on a stitched panel of watercolor paper and heat emboss the flower with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
  • color the image and the background with Daniel Smith and Schmincke Horadam watercolors 
  • add some splatters
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Capri Weihnachtspost set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) and mount the panel onto a piece of dark brown cardstock before adhering it to a cardbase

I hope you got inspired.
