Poinsettia Christmas


I've been playing with the Penny Black Scarlet Majesty cling stamp, one of my absolute favourites.  This first one is on mixed media paper using Distress Inks, with a touch of black pen to add tension.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I'm entering this into Penny Black Saturday challenge - Christmas.

...or Hedgie

I did this next one on Hunkydory Ink Me card and went for a cleaner image, adding shading with coloured pencils.  The sentiment is from Uniko Studio.

I'm entering it into The Flower Challenge - Christmas

Please take our badge ;)

While the stamp was still in the MISTI I spritzed and stamped off and got this image.  It needed a little help, so I outlined it and added veins for a bit of definition.  The sentiment is from MFT.

I'm entering this one in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

I got a couple more stamp-offs that you can see in this group picture.  Not a bad morning's work, eh?


  1. Not a bad morning? I'd say you accomplished a lot, Shirley, and every single card is gorgeous. I love the added pen lines to some and the background inks on others but the clean one you sent to The Flower Challenge took my breath away. Thank you for entering our Christmas challenge.

  2. I mean, THUD! I love the artsy flow of this gorgeous poinsettia and you have emphasized that lilting quality brilliantly with all your various colorful designs, Shirley-Girley! They are stunning! I hope you have a Happy Christmas! Thank you for playing along with The Flower Challenge! Hugs, Darnell GD
