Painted Poinsettias

Hello everyone,

Today's Christmas card uses another stamp in my latest 'paint stoke' set.

The image is Penny Black Joyous stamped in Tombow 098 and 856 on Recollections Vanilla and layered on Stampin' Up Old Olive and a red of unknown origin.  The sentiment is Hero Arts Holiday Sayings stamped in Early Espresso and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.  The embellishments are Kaisercraft Dec 25th adhesive pearls.

This is a beautiful poinsettia stamp!  I love the somewhat primitive aspect of this painted style.  It was a little challenging to ink.  It's a clear stamp and it can take some conditioning before it inks up as it should.  I tried a number of different inks before settling on the trusty Tombow markers. 

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
