Pinks and Blues for Christmas

Welcome! Today I am using non-traditional colors with one of my favorite Power Poppy stamp set Poinsettia.  I love the combo of colors Distress Oxide inks Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feathers, and Peeled Paint that I used to water color the image with a water brush.  Used Versamark and Gold EP to stamp both the image and sentiment.  Inked the edge of the white layer with a Gold Pilot Marker and adhered to turquoise mat and pink card base.

It's so refreshing to see a poinsettia with non-traditional colors, Theresa! Your soft oxide ink watercolouring is beautiful and I love that you inked the edge of the white layer with a gold marker. I thought you used a gold foil panel at first! Hideko :-)
