A Heartfelt Poinsettia
I used the Heartfelt Poinsettia stamps which were made to coordinate with the Spellbinder Blossoms 2 dies to make this flower. As before, I used two of each of the larger petals and one smaller one to creative "just enough" height to suit the front of a card. I also used the same Antique Linen Distress Ink to stamp the flowers and ink the edges of the petals. Antique Brass Glimmer Mist compliments this colour of ink and allowed the petals to be pliable enough to curl with the end of a thin paint brush. In the centre of the flower I applied Gold Pearl Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is from Gina K's Fanciful Tag stamp, created to coordinate with the Spellbinder Fancy Tag dies.
