Turquoise Tattered Poisettia

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well during this busy season.     We are enjoying milder weather than normal but I would like to see the sun a little more.   December is usually a dreary month but with the cold weather in January the sun comes back.

I have a Christmas design to show that was a lot of fun to create.

Background:  Dylusion spray inks and with stencilling and stamping using Chocolate Baroque snowflakes.

Stencils:  Tim Holtz Christmas Words THS030 (with Krystal Viva Gel) and Poinsettia THS049 with Distress Ink

Dies:  Sizzix (Tim Holtz) -Tattered Poinsettia 658261 and Holiday Greens 658759, Impression Obsession- Reindeer DIE228-G,  Memory Box- Winterberry Sprig 98732

I embossed the reindeer antlers and the branches with silver embossing power.  I painted the reindeer with Viva 3D stamp paint.  The Poinsettia was stamped with Design by Ryn - Sea Bubbles, coloured with Distress Ink and a coat of Distress crackle paint added.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
