Pink & Green Poinsettia

Pink & greeen poinsettia Heather Telford

I’m not sure that poinsettias ever appear to be quite this pink but I have artist’s licence so here is a bright pink and green poinsettia. I stamped and painted this one way back in September and was pretty careful to note down colours and products with all the projects I was working on before I went to Australia. Somehow though, I can’t find my list for this one.

I used the MISTI so I could ink with pink first (maybe Victorian velvet or worn lipstick dsitress stain) then ink with green (mowed lawn distress stain??) and finally with aged mahogany distress stain. Once the petals were dry I added details with an aged mahogany distress marker.

It is entirely possible that I did not do this with distress stains at all; sorry, I’m just not sure. I did mat the panel with green then with burgandy making it a four-layer card which, for me, is a little unusual just like the colour scheme.


Stamps: Scarlet Majesty, Joy filled(PB)
Inks:  not sure but my guesses are listed in the description above.
Cardstock: Fabriano 100% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper, green cardstock, burgandy cardstock

      Thank you Pat, I’m surprised how many like the bright coloured poinsettia; I thought it was a bit too pink! I had a wonderful time in Australia. It was lovely to be with my family for the first time in 3 years.
