Golden PoinsettiasPosted: September 20, 2016
As the title of this post suggests I embossed the poinsettia stamp from the ‘Winter Joy’ transparent set in gold. I also added gold wink of stella to the centres of some of the poinsettias. The colour painted in and around the poinsettias is distress stain. I kept the look loose and fluid by painting wet into wet.
On the card below I began by inking the ‘red star’ stamp in red and green stain then stamping it onto the wet panel. Some of the colour ended up in the poinsettias, some outside. I used a paintbrush to paint the same stains into the petals to make the colour more intense.
I’m not sure that the camera picked up the gold and shiny factor as much as it could have; it’s pretty in real life.
