Painted Poinsettia

it feels so good to have a bit of time to relax, paint and create.

i used one of my favourite poinsettia stamps for the christmas in july theme for the Impression Obsession challenge : i love this IO Poinsettia (H8301) because it’s so open and i paired it with a new IO sentiment stamp Warmest Wishes (D14682).

the image was stamped three times, painted with twinkling h2os, fussy cut and attached to a splattered background, sponged with distress inks; to finish it off i added some nuvo crystal drops.

i’m also playing along with:
Little Red Wagon – Use Favorite Products: twinkling H2Os, my favourite red twink, paint brushes, watercolour paper, poinsettia stamp.
