Watercolor Christmas

This is the first Christmas card I have made this year.

Addicted to CAS - Watercolor    

Using Gina K - A Year of Flowers, stamped the poinsettia with Versamark and heat embossed with a dark red embossing powder on watercolor paper.  Added some leaves and heat embossed with green embossing powder.  Then watercolored the image with Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Forest Moss and Fresh Squeezed Lemonade smeared on a kraft sheet picking up the color with a waterbrush.  Then did a light layer of the yellow around the poinsettia.  Stamped the sentiment in Memento Pine (?) 4 times with my MISTI and it was still a little blottchy, so stamped in onto some white cardstock and trimmed it to fit over the original stamping and cut the end into a fishtail.  After it was all put together I added a little bit of yellow Stickles to the flower center.

Thank you for stopping by for a closer look!

A beautiful poinsettia! I love the yellow layer -- it really makes the flower pop. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
