Merry Christmas with Inspired by Stamping!

Wow! Have you feasted your eyes on all the new releases that were showcased for Inspired by Stamping over the last 5 days. We have all had so much fun creating with them.

Today I have a card to share with you using the Poinsettias set. 

This is a beautiful set for you to create an amazing Poinsettia. I decided to go with a watercoloured look.

I created my background by laying some distress inks directly onto my craft mat and misting them with water. I then pressed my watercolour card on top and picked up the colours. 

Once I dried it with my heat gun, I stamped the poinsettia and coloured it in with a smallish brush. Once I had applied a fair bit of colour I gave it a very light mist of water to get the colour to run a little. I dried it off again and then stamped the sentiment (from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set).

I added pearls in the center.
