Color Layering Poinsettia Trio on a2z

Happy Sunday!

I must say I am doing pretty well in building up my Christmas Cards Stash this year.  Today I share three cards on a2z Scrapbooking Supplies.

I have other poinsettia stamps already, but when I saw the Hero Arts Color Layering Poinsettia Stamps and Frame cut, I just could not resist!  LOL   Right after I got them I tried different color combinations, the reds ones were easy.  But it took me many tries to get the white/yellow ones to my liking.  So let's see this one first.

Colors for the poinsettia are (base, middle, top): Ranger Distress Squeezed Lemonade, Lemon Yellow (from Jayne's Fall Color), Lime Green (from Amy's Shades of Green). 

And I used a paint brush to add some Perfect Pearl solution for the shimmery highlights on the petals, and used Liquid Pearl for the center.

The sentiment is stamped in Ranger Distress Crushed Olive and clear heat embossed.  The decorative strip is part of a panel I did by painting wide strips of Glimmer Metallic Gold ink across a white panel with a flat toothed watercolor brush.  I cut up my panel and used on all three cards.

Colors for this poinsettia are (base, middle, top): Ranger Distress Barn Door, Hero Arts Mid-tone Shadow Red Royal, Ranger Distress Vintage Photo.  The flower center is painted with Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Ranger Distress Peeled Paint and clear heat embossed.  

On this last one, the sentiment is gold heat embossed but it was kind of lost, so I used a marker and added shadow to make it stand out.  Instead of sequins I added dots of Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.

Here's a couple close up you could see the glimmer and shine.
