My first card started out life as an ATC that I thought would look good on a card. I made the card a smaller one.. 3.5" by 4.5".
I used some Close to My Heart watercolour paper for the ATC panel and white embossed the poinsettia. I did a wet on wet paint technique by wetting the image before adding the paint. The sentiment is from another Hero Arts set. I dragged some of the paint out around the flower.

My second card is a full size A5 size and uses the same technique for colouring the Poinsettia.
I started by stamping the Stampin'Up text in 2nd generation using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. Once the flower was coloured I masked it and sponged Tumbled Glass distress ink all over the card. I then added watered down Golden Glitz ink and some of the pink paint. The sentiment is from a set in the SOA Candy Cane Lane collection.
and for my last card I chose a different colour for the flower
I started by stamping the poinsettia in a light grey Altenew ink. I used cream and fawn colours. I added a pale grey Copic marker round the outside and then around some of the petals. The sentiment is another one from SOA Candy Cane Lane collection.
