So for my inspiration project for STAMPlorations I've done that. And then I decided to create a wheelbarrow full of po
I stamped the image from Friends and Flowers in Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper then colored the blooms with coral and red Zig Clean Color Brush Pens. For the leaves I chose dark green. I made the edges of the blooms less round and more jagged. I'm callin' 'em poinsettias!
Since it might have been the spark that caused my wheelbarrow of poinsettias, I thought I'd share with you a blast from the past (2007) when my kiddies were still so sweet and had their fun decorating cutout cookies... Actually DD still helps me every year. Anyhoo, notice the poinsettias on the corner of the island? My standard decoration every year. I glued pine cones around the outside of a plastic bowl and then I buy 3 mini poinsettias to set in it. You get the "abundance of poinsettias" look for cheap. Just sayin'.
Can you see the touches of golden shine - the heat embossed sentiment from Sentiment Builders: Christmas and New Year, the bloom centers and the strip of washi at the bottom of the watercolored panel? I even put some gold watercolor over the top of the wheelbarrow but it doesn't show in the photo.
I'm hooking up at Addicted to Stamps and More where it's Make your Mark this time and Simon Says Stamp where the Work it Wednesday for November is about Christmas. And where the Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes.
