We're Having a Christmas Party @ Uniko!

Good morning folks.
Over at Uniko we are having a bit of a party for all our Uniko friends.
All you have to do is create a Christmas project, anything goes, using your Uniko goodies and link it up! 
Join in the party & share your Christmas cards, tags, projects or scrapbook pages using Uniko Clear Stamps, Stencils or Designer Dies. See the Party Rules at the end of the post to be eligible to win one of the three prizes on offer.

How about an incentive to join in & some PRIZES!

First Prize £25 eGift Certificate

Second & Third Prize Winners Choice of £10 In-Stock Clear Stamp Set

Here is my card using the poinsettia outline from the Season of Beauty stamp set and Background Builders Christmas set.

I used the layout from a card I made last month at a craft class in N Wales with Lydia from Altenew.
I love watercolouring but struggle to use it loosely enough, so really had to just go with this colouring!
On a panel of Mixed Media paper, I stamped the outlines and leaves with Altenew Black ink and left it to dry thoroughly. Taking each sepal or leaf at a time, I added some clean water with a medium brush before adding slightly watered down Altenew ink, first Heartbeat, then Vineyard Berry to the base of the sepal or leaf. The water takes the ink and blends it for you. Don't be too precise adding the clear water as the white patches liven up the image. By the way I say sepal as the flowers of a poinsettia are actually the tiny insignificant yellow centers! I used Altenew's Forest Glades and Evergreen ink for the leaves.
If you need to go back in to deepen the colour, add some water first to the while leaf or sepal so you don't end up with hard edges.
When completely dry, I added some splatters of gold and a sentiment strip, a narrow strip of gold glitter paper under the sentiment completes.
So that's me done, but if you would like to join in check out the rules below.
