Poinsettia for Merry Monday

Hello.

I'm slipping in just under the wire again for Merry Monday.


This week's host is my sweet friend JoAnn.

This beautiful poinsettia stamp was in my NBUS box.

I stamped and embossed the flower in white and watercolored using re-inkers and my water brush.

When it was dry, I masked the poinsettia, stamped the leaves and embossed.

Again I used re-inkers and my waterbrush to watercolor the leaves.

I popped it on an inlaid stitched square and frame. 
Then I added some gold microbeads to the center of the poinsettia, stamped
a sentiment and done.

Only one this time.

It's been super busy around here lately.  It's all good as we've got to spend lots
of time with our grandkids.  

Sorry I haven't been around to visit much.  I hope to catch up one of these days.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Beautiful bright red poinsettia that just pops off the white background. Fantastic embossing, masking and watercolouring of your poinsettia and leaves, Bonnie. Makes such a beautiful corner spray for your stitched rectangle. xx

Beautiful card. I like the embossed in white effect with the red and green coloring and setting it off with the stitched frame and the sentiment you chose. A rich, CAS result...
