Poinsettia Sparkle

It’s the reminder post for The Flower Challenge. I have this beautiful Poinsettia from The Ton.

I started stamping the image on watercolor paper in Versamark ink and heat embossing it in Gold Tinsel. The Tinsel gave the image a little extra shine. I then took out my Daniel Smith watercolor in Permanent Violet and painted the image.

To add a little extra shine, I then used Royal Purple Shimmerz and focused on the shading of the petals. For the center I used some Elfin’ Magic Vibez.

Once everything was dry, I die cut the Merry on gold sparkle paper in my stash and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and clear heat embossed it.

  1. WOW!! I totally envy card makers who can create these kinds of gorgeous cards with really big images.
    Your Poinsettia is amazing, the gold embossing of it looks spectacular with the deep and rich purples you used to color this fabulous image.
    Awesome card teammate.
    Hugs.
