yellow poinsettia...

Hello friends!!  Wow... December is here!!  Time sure does fly by doesn't it???  Have a little card to share that I made for Seize the Sketch that uses this week's SCS color challenge combo of Baja Breeze, Delightful Daffodil and Night of Navy.  For this card I used the gorgeous Penny Black stamp Warm Wishes, as well as a sentiment from the Penny Black set "banner of joy".  ETA:  I have never played along with Addicted to Stamps, but I saw that their current challenge is "holidays" so I thought I would enter this in the challenge.


I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with the following Copic markers:  Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17 & Y19.   Yellow isn't necessarily a color you see in those huge displays of poinsettias at the nursery or store, but they do come in a nice creamy yellow shade so I'm not too far off, right?   Once I was done coloring the image I applied some glue to the center of the flower and added some glass glitter.  Once the glue was dry I stamped the sentiment using Night of Navy ink and then mounted the piece on a Baja Breeze card base.  Super simple, but I think rather striking.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Baja Breeze; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink;  Memento Tuxedo Black & SU! Night of Navy; Glass Glitter:  Stampin Up! Baja Breeze; Copic Markers

Hello Rosie
You always stop me in my tracks with your cards, I don't know what it is with your CAS creations that always make me catch my breadth, but it does. Another gorgeous example here today; the poinsettia coloured up in the Sunny Yellow is stunning.
