I'm a sucker for a poinsettia at Christmas it just wouldn't be the same without one but I must admit that as soon a January 1st comes it's got to go! Can't have it hanging around until Easter! I do like decoupage as a technique too so this stamp from Jane Gill from last years Christmas stamps was perfect. Simply stamp your images where you want your design to be on white card & then stamp again onto extra card for however many layers you wish to add- in this case the base & twice more. I do like to colour just the edges of the base image which will be covered just in case a bit peeks through. I've softly coloured with pencils & after cutting out the flowers I've given them some character & shape with a large ball tool before attaching with 3D foam pads. The sentiment comes with the stamp set & to finish I've mounted onto the green mirror card before attaching to the card blank. I've filled the berries with a generous amount of Liquid Pearls & added some sparkle with the Stickles.
