This card, started as a oh what the heck...what would this look like...and I loved it. The stamps sets are Ellen's Mondo Poinsettia, and Simon's Big Scripty Greetings Holiday. Ranger's platinum embossing powder and two colored pencils one in Vermillion and one in Lemon Yellow. They are my neglected Artist's Loft pencils and had nice sharp tips.
After stamping and embossing my images, I simply stroked on color very lightly at the inner and outer petals (leaves) of the poinsettia. No blending, just soft strokes of color. I embossed the greeting, and added a toss of clear/silvery sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
