More Christmas Cards.

The weather has turned a lot colder here recently so there is plenty of time to crack on with my Christmas cards (too cold in the garden now)!!  I have been inking up my Poinsettia stamps from Hero Arts, experimenting with different inks.  This first card is just stamped using the new Ombre ink , I have stamped it twice and layered up the middle petals on pop dots for dimension.  I have also layered up the frame.  Pleased with this one, I like the white edges to the petals.



For the second card I have stamped the flower outline and coloured with copic markers.  I have also added a piece of glitter card for some sparkle.  I am adding both cards to the new challenge at Hero Arts "Holiday Cards".

Lovely! I'm not usually even a fan of poinsettias, but I love the way you've done these. I can't wait to get started on my Christmas cards!
