Watercolor Poinsettias

Selected as a Favorite of the Week
at Split Coast Stampers

Hi & hello.....

Ok, I jumped on the Watercolor bandwagon....Jill Foster over at Penny Black just made it look so easy. She is a Genius with coloring!!! Then Kathy Racoosin painted the most beautiful Poinsettias, so of course I had to give it a try.
Let me just say...it is not as easy as it looks. 

My background attempts are going to take some practice before they hit the blog.  :)
However, I do love how my Poinsettias turned out...then I got carried away painting them.

Background was done with Memento Luxe inks.


You know I love Teal...had to do it!

Background done with StazOn Blue Hawaii, Emerald City & StazOn Cleaner.  :)


The card base is inked with Memento Luxe Morocco & Rhubarb Stalk...love how that small edge of color ties everything together.

Background is StazOn Orange Zest, St. Valentine & StazOn Cleaner.

Very pretty and I love the sparkle. Such a nice festive touch! You have convinced me that I need to add glitter back into my stash now that I am making non-OWH cards too.
