'Tis the Season with Crafty Addicts

Hiya Folks,
Well it's that time again....a new monthly challenge over at Crafty addicts. The theme is 'Anything Goes/Tis the Season' Our sponsors this month are Robyn's Fetish and Knitty Kitties. I have used the fab ''Prissy Poinsettia'' by Robyn's Fetish, which you can purchase here for my DT project. This is what I came up with ... Colour wise a bit different for me using shades of gold/copper/browns.

My Project 
 Products Used 
''Prissy Poinsettia'' - Robyn's Fetish digi stamp
Creative Expressions - Elegant Poinsettias rubber stamps by Sue Wilson
WOW! - Metallic Gold Rich (reg) and Metallic Copper (reg) Embossing Powder, Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter
VersaMark - Ink Pad and VersaMarker Watermark Pen
Spellbinders - Decorative Ovals cutting dies
X-Cut - Sentiment dies and snowflake die
Docrafts - Adhesive Gold Domes and Forever Friends Classic Decadence adhesive gems
ProMarkers - Sandstone,Mustard, Umber, Cocoa, Tan, Cinnamon and Dusky Pink
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card for poinsettia image.
Creata - Copper Mirror Card
Gold card and ribbon from my stash 

First of all a printed out the poinsettia image 3 times and carefully cut out in layers to decoupage. I coloured using the various ProMarker pens, assembled then added detail to the leaf veins by heat embossing using Versamarker pen and WOW Metallic Copper powder. I also embossed detail onto the berries with WOW Metallic Gold Rich and Sparkling Snow embossing glitter around the edges of the poinsettia. The base card I used was a scalloped plain white 8x8 card. For the background, I stamped and heat embossed all over using Poinsettia stamp, VersaMark ink pad and WOW Copper and Gold embossing powders. I die cut gold contrasting card from my stash using Spellbinders Decorative Oval die and added poinsettia topper, placing this in the centre of my project. I also cut out the sentiment words using X-Cut die and Creata mirror card, adding to the bottom and finishing off with the ribbon bow, die cut mirror card snowflake, gems and gold domes!!
