Sparkly Poinsettia by Stampendous!

I love the colors of Christmas!
And the fact that the beautiful Poinsettias will soon be in the stores in so many gorgeous colors!

Stampendous has a wonderful holiday stamp,
"Poinsettia Background"!


I just had to heat emboss it, ink it with my daubers, and then VERY CAREFULLY color inside the flowers with my Copics...yes, I know, living dangerously!
I took it slow and tried hard not to get too close to any of the embossed lines.
And afterward, I cleaned those nibs!

I used more Copics colors to blend than I normally do (stepping out of my box).
R22, R32, R35, and RV21
and couldn't resist covering the whole image with embossing ink and clear embossing powder to give it a shine and make those colors POP!


The sparkle is done with the Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter and an edge of
A sprinkling of gold micro beads, a pretty little pearl button that I altered with my Copics, and a soft five-loop bow finishes off this one!
Here is a front-on view better showing the crushed glass!


It just adds an elegance to everything!
