Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous Poinsettia Christmas Card

I was up early this morning, so decided to have a play with my Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stencils, making this Christmas card. It reminds me very much of Kath Kidston prints, I guess it's the colour combo.

I started with a white card and the Tim Holtz Poinsettia Duo stencil, using "Festive Berries" Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil.

Next, I used "Lost Shadow" Distress Oxide Ink through the Tim Holtz "Dot Fade Layering Stencil" only using it around the large flower.

I then moved on to adding some green using "Rustic Wilderness" Distress Oxide Ink through the Tim Holtz "Chevron Shifter Layering Stencil", I only used this around the large flower.

I used "Festive Berries" Distress Oxide Ink very lightly through the Tim Holtz "Tiny Poinsettia" stencil fading the colour out towards the edge of the card.

I edged the card, using "Mowed Lawn" Distress Oxide Ink, applied with a blending brush.

I used a Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous cling stamp from the "Mini Holidays CMS142" set with "Festive Berries" Distress Oxide Ink to stamp the Christmas sentiment.

Finally, I splattered white acrylic paint from a fan shaped paint brush lightly over the surface of the card so simulate snowfall, then mounted the finished image on to a white card blank.

I added yellow dots of Posca Pen to the middle of some of the flowers and then splattered white acrylic paint over the surface of the card.
