We're using a monochrome theme this week in shades of red & not as most people have come to expect, black & white. I've used an older Magenta stamp this week but one of my favourites the Poinsettia. I've stamped firstly on to a piece of red card using Moonlight White & then onto the vellum using Satin Red (this will take a little time to dry or you can carefully help it on it's way with a heat tool). I have shaded the leaves on the red piece using a coloured pencil & emphasised some of the design with a Sakura matt white gel pen. Then cut out the flower from the vellum piece & decoupage onto the red piece. I've highlighted the centre with some red Stickles. The greeting from the "Tis the Season" set has also been stamped with Satin Red. To finish I have added some small pieces from the new Mark Richards pearl flourish border, some polka dot ribbon, a holly flourish dye cut & some 3mm pearls.
