Metallic Inks Poinsettia Christmas

This card I did for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today. It is a beautiful site called Mackenzie-Childs, and there is a lot of inspiration.

For my card I picked this kettle. It was the black that got me as several weeks ago I ordered Black water colour paper and Metallic Inks. I have been wanting to give it a go, and today ended up being the day.

The stamp I used is from Stampendous, which I have had for several years and is now discontinued. I have linked to Scrap’n Stamp Canada which still has it in stock, and I would also suggest Impression Obsessions Poinsettia stamp for this technique, which I have also linked you to.

Stamping with VersaMark embossing ink I heat embossed with Brutus Monroe gold embossing powder. I love how this powder works with detailed stamps.

I did the Poinsettia with both pink, purple and a tad of blue. Used two different shades of green for the leaves, red for the berries and yellow and orange for the flower centres.

As I wanted the sentiment to go well with the look, I die cut it using the Black water colour paper and painted it with the Metallic Gold ink, which I also used for splatter.

Using Be Creative tape I attached the piece to my card base, which I think coordinates beautifully with the colours.

I loved painting this today, and I hope you enjoy it as well. I have provided Affiliate Links to the products that I have used for this card, at no additional cost to you.

      1. Hello Luise – Thank you for your comments on my Poinsettia Christmas. At the very end of my post are the links leading to the products I used. The metallic inks are listed there. I just taught a class this past Wednesday and the ladies loved them.
