Poinsettia Heaven

Good evening crafters and followers.  Sunday again, work tomorrow, yuck.   That is not strictly true as I actually enjoy my job and as I work part time and from home I have a brilliant job.  I am also lucky enough to work for a good company but if I am honest I would prefer to be a lady of leisure and be able to craft at my leisure, but needs must and I have lots of crafting goodies to by so I must work or a little while longer - hee hee.
Well my card tonight is an 8x8.   I used a set of poinsettia stamps from Dimension Stamps.  I began with the leaves, twigs etc and stamped those out in a mixture of pine distress inks and twig distress ink.  The poinsettia actually comes in two separate stamps the leaves part and the flower part finished off with the stamen part.  I stamped and coloured in the leaves and then stamped the flowers twice and coloured those in with spectrum noir pens finishing off with the stamen.  All of these were stamped with versafine and clear embossed.  The berries I coloured in with sakura pens.  Some matting and layering  and all finished off with a little sentiment embossed with gold embossing powder.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog.  Take care.
