Pink Poinsettias

I've been playing with some of my *classic* stamps this week. I consider this one a classic because for me it will never go out of style. From year to year, it's always favorite.

The image is Northwoods Pot with Poinsettia and Pine . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush.

I added Crystal Ultrafine Glitter to some of the poinsettia and the snowflakes on the bow.

The sentiment is Impression Obsession's Merry Christmas . I stamped it on Frosted Pink Prismatics paper, cut and embossed with my Fancy Tags die cut, then cut out the sentiment and adhered it to the Herbal Garden fancy tag. The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper pad.

If you would like to see more samples using this stamp, there are a couple more for you in the Northwoods Gallery in the store.

I think that covers it. Thanks for stopping by today!
