Poinsettia Greetings

Good morning! Ardyth here with some no-line colouring of the beautifully classic poinsettias from Poinsettia Greetings. I used Faber Castel Polychromos pencils and really took my time.

I stamped them with Antique Linen distress ink and then started by laying down a light red colour all over the red leaves. Then I went back with deeper reds, purples and even dark browns to add in some shadows and veining details. I followed a similar process for the green leaves, adding in some yellows and dark blues. For the berry centres, I used yellows and browns and added dots with a white gel pen to give some 'shine and dimension.

To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the same set with Black Jack ink and then went over it with a sparkly Gelli Roll pen.  I cut out the poinsettias and popped them up over a dark gray cardbase, leaving out the little die cut bits on the top right and bottom left corners.
