Poinsettia



Here's a card I made for Kim Teasdale's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge (note: the link will only show up for you if you're an SCS Fan Club Member).

The Large Poinsettia by Holly Berry House was stamped four times on watercolor paper with black craft ink, heat embossed with clear EP, watercolored with my new 815 Tombow Marker (I've been wanting to try these markers for a long time, finally went and bought a couple..I like 'em!) and some Angel Wings Shimmerz paint. The bottom layer of the poinsettia is glued down with regular adhesive, the three layers above that are each up on foam tape. White Kaiser Craft Pearls were added to the center of the top layer.
