Touch Of Gold Poinsettia

Hello my lovelies!  Aren't you loving all the holiday inspiration on the Technique Junkies blog and Facebook page?  I am really into the holiday spirit.  Today I am using lots of red, with shimmery gold and a teensy bit of white.
 **See below for details for how to get 45% off the Fairy Tale Set and Big Flourish stamps I used inside the card!
Stamps:  SS099 Poinsettia Set of 4
              JT030 Victorian Greetings Set of 6
              SS085 Fairy Tale Set of 5 (inside)
              S448 Big Flourish (inside)  

I started with watercolor paper, and used distress ink with ink applicators to cover the paper with downward swipes of pink and red distress ink.  When fully covered, I used sprayed a fine mist of water over it to let the colors blend and soften.  When that was dry, I sprinkled droplets of water onto the background, then wiped them up with a cloth, to create soft whitish splotches.

I stamped both poinsettia images from the Poinsettia Set randomly onto the panel, using the same pink and red inks.

I used white pigment ink to stamp the Merry Christmas verse from the Victorian Greetings set.  Finally, I added some white acrylic paint dots with a stylus tool, then spattered on some gold FineTec paint.  

I layered the panel onto a panel of gold glitter paper, then onto a red A2 card front.

Next, I white embossed the smaller poinsettia from the set onto a scrap of red card stock, and painted it with FineTec gold paint, then spattered the same gold onto the panel.  I added this to a gold glitter panel, then a white panel, with a scant 1/16" border, just to bring in a tad more white to offset the white splotches and embossing.  I added this to the card with foam tape to give the card some dimension.

And for the inside, I used gold sparkly embossing powder for the verse from the Fairy Tale Set of 5 set and the Big Flourish stamp.  By the way...both of these fabulous stamps are on the 35% Inventory Reduction list.  See below for details!!  Add my TJ10Lynda discount code and take another 10% off, for a 45% discount now!!
