Poinsettia for Merry Monday


Hello, friends! The glorious summer weather continues here on Long Island, but that doesn't stop me from working on my Christmas card stash. This card features a stamp set I'm using for the first time, Poinsettia from the Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society. After all my hard work coloring with Copic markers (two practice tries before I got to this one), I decided that all the attention should be on the Poinsettia so I set it on a simple white card base.


I'm playing along with the red and green challenge at Merry Monday, and the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Poinsettia (Tenhique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Cherry Cobbler (SU), Xpress It Blending Cardstock (Copic)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Accessories: Gold Dazzling Details (SU)

Thanks for stopping by today and please leave a comment!
