I began by heat embossing the full poinsettia & just the center on watercolor paper. Then I colored the piece using the smooshing technique with Distress Inks chipped sapphire, faded jeans & weathered wood and fussy cut the images. I spritzed them with Glitter Dust, added silver beads to the center & mounted it to the full flower with foam tape.
The card front was stamped in the same 3 inks using IO CAC spatter. I turned the stamp each time before going to the next color & this is the result. Looks neat, I think. The IO sentiment (B8767) was stamped in chipped sapphire on a white strip attached to the front. I lightly bent up the petals before attaching the poinsettia with foam tape. Finished off with some PPP Sparkling Clear sequins. I'd love to make these in several colors, except for the fussy cutting--haha! I'm also entering for fun at Pixies Snippets Playground. We're having lovely Fall weather--great for walking Fritz. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add: Just realized my card works for the Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers, so this will be my first time entering one of their challenges.
