Pink Poinsettia ...

I always thought that all poinsettias were red with some green ... imagine my delight when I checked on google and found that they come in pink as well!  Why did this delight me? ... this week's challenge at TIME OUT is Christmas with the optional twist of using pink/purple ... so the existence of pink poinsettias meant I knew exactly which stamp set to use!  Having created poinsettia card in conventional Christmas colour I couldn't resist the temptation to use pink.

This is the card:

I stamped and heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.  Then water coloured the image using distress inks.  I wanted to keep the design clean and simple but at the same time add some dimension so I cut a frame into the image and popped the main part of the image up using some fun foam.

I created another card using the same image and colours ... but I'm not sure about the finished card so I'm going to have a think about whether to post it or not!

I used:
Uniko Pure Florals Poinsettia
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry
Perfect Pearls

I'm entering these challenges:
