Pretty Pointsettias



(Yes I know Poinsettia is spelled wrong in my title but I can't change it or it will mess up my link...sorry guys)

These big Poinsettias by Stampendous are perfect to fill a card.  The music was stamped first then the Poinsettias were embossed with gold and watercolored with Adirondack Inks which is a dye ink and it worked out perfectly.  I was afraid the music would smear since it's also a dye ink but it didn't, yay!  Glitter was added to the center for just a touch of bling.

Stampendous is sold out of this popular stamp but if you would like to get it, it is available at Stamplistic.

This Poinsettia was colored with watercolor pencils with a very similar effect.  Since the image is embossed I took the color off the pencil with a wet brush rather and coloring directly on the paper since I didn't want the embossing to chip off.
