Prepping Poinsettia's for Christmas

Hello crafty friends!!  I'm here today to show you my handmade flowers
using various mediums such as Foamiran, Watercolour Paper, Mixed Media
Paper and 12x12 luxury Card stock from The Works

These pink Poinsettia were made using the luxury 220gsm textured cardstock
from the Range.  I coloured the centres with Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress ink pad.

The Gold poinsettia were made using 160 gsm Premier Mixed Media artists
pad (size A3) from Aldi and I used Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress ink pad to
colour them.  
 The flowers above and below we made using red Foamiran 0.06  I added a little
gesso on the tips and dipped them into German glass glitter
 The last poinsettia we made with white 0.06 Foamiran and the centres were coloured
using standard colour box ink pads. Once gain the tips have been treated with 
gesso and dipped into glass glitter.  

All the dies used in the making of the flowers and leaves were from
LadyE design 

I've had a lovely flower making few days, now I need to get them all
onto various projects in readyness for Christmas.

Have a fabulous day everyone.
