MCV15 - Another Poinsettia
I don't often play along with challenges more than once, but this is another card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Chriss has provided this inspiration:
Yesterday, we had a 'stamping day'. Tracey, Emily, Natasha and I try to get together every few weeks to catch up, have lunch and get creative. We're becoming very efficient and yesterday there was a lot of die cutting and stamping done as we 'borrowed' each other's supplies.
For instance, I borrowed Essentials by Ellen's Mondo Poinsettia (and matching dies) from Emily, and stamped and cut a whole bunch of them to use later. When I came home last night I started colouring one of them and thought how pretty it would be for this challenge. But I hadn't stamped or die cut any leaves. So I just used another poinsettia, coloured green, underneath the red one. I coloured both with Copics and a coating of Wink of Stella (completely invisible in this photo) and put it on a black square for pop and then onto a brushed gold card base.
Still lots of time to join us at MCV this week - the deadline is Wednesday at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until 8 am Thursday morning. Voting results will be posted on Thursday at noon. Hope to see you there!
