Joyful Poinsettia

It’s my second week as Guest Designer over at the Splitcoaststampers color challenge.  We are playing with Tempting Turquoise, Primrose Petals and Real Red.  I’ve used similar shades of Distress Inks.  And for dessert this week…a tag.

The background has added texture.  It was made by dry embossing some designer paper with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then gently running some Distress Ink over it.

I’ve added Distress Inks used as watercolor to a torn manila tag that’s been stamped with the poinsettia.  For a bit of sparkle, there’s some Wink of Stella on the entire poinsettia and some Stickles on the center.  A little bow and Tim Holtz charm complete the tag.

  2. A lovely combination of festive colors in this tag. The rich berry poinsettia looks wonderful against the blue washed bkground. Love the text print with the colorful embossed words. TFS & playing in the HLS November Christmas Tag challenge.
