Bringing you some Christmas cheer again today with this gorgeous set from Power Poppy called Poinsettia. I rarely used jewel tones together, but since we’re doing a Think Pink Challenge, I thought it would be fun to pull some pretty pink, purple, teal and green colours together.
I stamped the image several times with a cool grey ink, and then coloured it all up with Inktense pencils and my water brush. I used a thicker cardstock instead of watercolour paper, because for some reason I feel like it keeps more of its pigment on cardstock. If you don’t use too much water, it still works great.
After the layers were coloured I cut it out and layered it together using foam dots in-between.
Here’s a closer look at the dimension between the layers. I added some sparkly pieces in the pennants, some teal sequins, and teal piece of cardstock embossed with a pine embossing folder.
So, now I’ll hand it off to the rest of the Bloom Brigade playing along today...
