I finally used my WPlus9 Pretty Poinsettias stamp set that I bought last year - or maybe the year before. It's a multi-layered poinsettia set and I love it! I've only used 2 layers on this card. For both the petals and the leaves, I've used the stamp and the vein stamp. I stamped with SSS Hot Lips and Hero Arts Field Green. The ink needs to be completely dry on one layer before you add the next layer or it will not be darker on the next layer. The pollen was added with The same green ink and Mustard Seed distress ink.
The sentiment is from the Penny Black Christmas Cheer stamp set. I love the different fonts in this sentiment set. I die cut the panel with a SSS stitched rectangle die, added it to green CS and adhered it to the card base.
I am just squeaking this in to the Happy Little Stampers October Christmas Challenge where a poinsettia needs to be featured. Also I will join in at Time Out #43 for their Christmas challenge without the twist. I am also entering Addicted to Stamps & More where the theme is Holiday.
Tomorrow morning I'll be off to a feis bright and early to watch my Irish princess compete. Then in the evening it will be trick or treating time. I hope you have a great Halloween. Enjoy!
