Boundless Poinsettias

Hello and happy Friday! It’s TaeEun here today with a slimline holiday card! I used one of our holiday themed grouped layering stamp sets, Boundless Poinsettias to make my watercolored holiday card. 

Boundless Poinsettias stamp is a beautiful poinsettia cluster image and I thought it would be perfect for a one layer design. As it is a grouped layering stamp set, there are small square layering markers. When I stamped the image I washed the ink off from the markers so that I got the image stamped without them on my card. 

To start I stamped the second layer stamp of the poinsettias in Peach Blossom on a watercolor paper panel and added the second layer of the leaves in Matcha to the image. The second layer of the image shows me the nooks and crannies of the petals and leaves and I also can guess the outlines. 

Next I watercolored the image. After done with watercoloring I colored the image again with Polychromos colored pencils to give it more contrast and splattered white opaque ink on the whole panel.

The sentiment is also from the Boundless Poinsettias set. I cut the colored panel using the second largest die from Slimline Scalloped Nested die set and gold heat embossed the sentiment on the panel. I foam mounted the panel on a dark red cardbase and finished off the card with a few Medallion Gold sequins. 

That’s it from me ! Hope you’ve got some inspiration from my card! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a lovely weekend!
