I can't believe that I've been back from my holiday for a week - the time has flown by! We had a fabulous time, the weather was generally very good and we walked over 100 miles during the holiday, mainly on the stunning coast path.
I took a lot of stamped images on holiday so I could relax with some colouring in an evening and this is one of the images I coloured, ready to be popped on a card for the July Rudolph Day. I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'. I actually coloured three poinsettias so have made three of these cards towards this month's ten Christmas cards.
Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Stamp: Personal Impressions 'Poinsettia' and Hot off the Press sentiment (magazine freebie)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Onyx Black
Card: Red mirri and white stamping
Paper: Beige patterned
Other: Wink of Stella
I stamped the poinsettia onto white stamping card and coloured it with Promarkers, before fussy cutting around the image. I stamped the sentiment onto the beige paper before layering it onto red mirri card and attaching it to the front of the card. I shaped the poinsettia before attaching it to the card with Pinflair glue. To finish, I outlined the flower and sentiment with a Wink of Stella.
