Poinsettia Wreath. This wreath is one of my favorite ones! The poinsettias are so fun to color and in this case, I decided to layer them up a bit. I heat embossed the image with gold and then cut it out, and I stamped the floral part a couple more times so I could layer on a few extra petals for dimension. I water colored with Distress Markers since Copics and embossing don't get along that well together. I decided to go for a lighter color in order to let the embossing shine a bit more, and then I added some little gold Recollections pearls. I love that this set has the separate bow so you can easily place it where ever you want it. The background is stamped with an older stamp from ODBD, Poinsettia Background. I stamped it with Distress Marker - Barn Door. I also used a Sizzix and a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and a Spellbinders Floral Ovals. The card base is vanilla and the matting is a red mirrored paper.
