I know it sounds a bit strange, Poinsettias with sea bubbles but I think it worked! I was happy to find the awesome Tattered Poinsettia Die Set (Tim Holtz by Sizzix) recently and had some fun playing with them.
The background is Dylusions and Distress Inks. I stamped over top with Design by Ryn's Snowflake Set but it's hard to see as there is a lot 'going on'. I also used white acrylic paint with a dotty Memory Box stencil. I added glitter with spray glue onto the background. Joy is from Chocolate Baroque's Artistic Expressions set.
I die cut the flowers on white card stock and coloured with Distress Ink including the new Twisted Citron which is a new favorite colour. I stamped over some of the petals with Design by Ryn's Sea Bubbles Set (using the smaller stamp). I also used Crackle paint on the flower and added glitter while wet. I added small beads to the centre with Glossy Accents. The greenery die cuts are from the Tim Holtz Sizzix die set - Holly Greens 658759. I added a little white puff paint to the greens.
You can see the Sea Bubbles better on the flowers in this next design below:
I used Distress Inks in the background (with water and Acrylic plate) and when dry I stenciled over with a couple of Memory Box stencils and Distress Inks. I also used Radiant Gels (African Jade) by ColourArte with a Holly Tim Holtz stencil. Merry Christmas is from the Penny Black-Christmas Cheer set.
I coloured the flowers again with Citron Distress Ink and stamped using Sea Bubbles with the same ink. After shaping I painted with Viva Crystall Gel and again added beads to the centres with Glossy Accents.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
