Visible Image Poinsettia Dies

Hello!  Here's another Christmas card made with the new co-ordinating dies that Visible Image have brought out for their existing stamp sets.  You get two dies for the Poinsettia set to match the two images.

I stamped the larger of the two poinsettia images with Versafine Onyx Black then die cut it.

I like to use Distress Inks as watercolours and slosh them loosely onto my images, letting the colours mingle and overlap.

I cut the Framed Fibres Layering from white card and layered it onto my base card for a white-on-white background.

For the sentiment, I stamped the words onto white card, dragged colour across then cut them at a rakish angle, then scraped the edges of the card across the black ink pad.

While I was making this card I stamped and coloured another poinsettia at the same time using the same colour scheme, and made a quick and easy background by dragging Zig Clean Colour brush pens across the card panel.

If you swipe the brush pens quickly enough they don't have time to soak into the card and you end up with a dry brush effect.

I stamped the sentiment onto the stripes.

The dies are currently 20% off with code DIES20.  And if you haven't already got the coordinating stamp set, you can get the stamp and die bundle for 20% off.  What's not to like?
