Watercoloured Poinsettias

 Hi, just popping by to share a card for a few challenges whilst I've got a moment or two to spare!
It's a CASe of one here I did many years ago using this fab Penny Black poinsettia and a Stampendous background stamp.
If you are a regular visitor you will have noticed that I have been indulging my artistic side with some watercolour themed cards and this is no exception!

On a panel of textured card, I stamped the three poinsettias, masking as I went, with Altenew's Limestone ink for a watercolour effect. Masking these off with outlines cut from Post It notes, I then stamped the text panel with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. The sepals were then watercoloured using a mix of DIs smooshed onto an acrylic mat. After colouring the area around them was painted with plain water and the green DI added to give a textured effect. The tiny yellow flowers were added using a couple of Zig watercolour pens. Trimmed down, the finished panel was then added to an A6 red note card.
