With having recently purchased several Copic markers I've been itching to try and colour the poinsettia image in the SU Joyful Christmas set. So far I've only used that set once; to make my Christmas hamburger treat boxes.
I opted to stamp the image in black, although I also really want to try this with white or silver embossing powder.
I stamped my image 2 times and layers it. The first layer is the full flower. The outer petals are coloured with shading the inner petals are coloured in the darkest red only. On my second image I shaded the smaller petals and then fuzzy cut them and adhered on top of my full image using foam mounting tape cut to size. I then cut out the large image as well and adhered it to my card front with more foam tape.
I'm happy enough with the results but think I can do an even better colouring job if I give this image a few more tries. Guess there will be several poinsettia cards this Christmas.
The flower center is made of 8 small pearls that I coloured yellow using my Copic.
