Hi everyone. Time for the Happy Little Stampers October Christmas Challenge.
I die-cut three of the smallest poinsettia flowers from watercolour paper. I pressed my Festive Berries ink onto my craft mat and used a water brush to pick up the ink and colour my flowers. I used Twisted Citron for the leaves. I didn't add any shading, instead I decided to leave it as is so the bright colours really popped off the white card front. I could have used coloured card stock, but I like the soft texture of the watercolour paper. It's just another way to colour.
I shaped the petals with my stylus and mat, and then glued them all together, off-setting the petals. I added some gold seed beads to the center for a little bit of sparkle. A simple stamped sentiment and the card was finished. Easy, peasy and fun card to make. :)
This month we have Pat (Colourful Creations) as our Guest Designer. Welcome to the team Pat!! :) Please click HERE to see Pat's beautiful poinsettia Christmas card, and the other wonderful cards from the rest of the talented Design Team.
