I love this gorgeous poinsettia image. Using my MISTI I stamped it in brown Versafine ink on water colour card, coloured it with Zig water colour brushes and a clear spectrum noir brush - such a shame you can't see all the sparkle - it's so pretty. Once completely dry, I put the image back in the MISTI and stamped it again, added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I like doing this as it gives really clean, crisp lines. I then fussy cut the flower. I created the base from dark brown card and die cut a panel of cream card using the dotted die. I added a simple Christmas greeting at the top of the panel. On the inside I cut another panel of cream card on which I stamped the outline poinsettia again, adding just a touch of colour to the centre. I finished with a Christmas message.
I'm submitting this card to the new challenge at Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#103 where the cue word is WISH - well, I've got wishes, but that should be okay. So glad my mojo is back!
