Pretty Poinsettia

Lately I've been very inspired by Jill Foster and Joy Taylor. Both are so talented and I'm learning a lot about distress inks watching them work on youtube. I think they used this Penny Black poinsettia stamp and I had CASE it. It's embossed in white and then sponged with Festive Berries distress ink and some Fired Brick for the darker shading.

I made this one for my sister and her family. Hope she likes it ! :)

Penny Black blog is a great resource - they are already showing Valentine's stamps. I don't really send V-day cards but I might have to get some of those stamps. Maybe use them for friendship or anniversary cards instead.

Stamps used:
CL460 Hero Arts Joy To All
S5507 Hero Arts Envelope Pattern
Penny Black Cling Christmas Pride
