It's Anything Goes at CAS WaterColour Challenge.

CAS Watercolour Blog has their 
December Challenge up and running and it's
Anything Goes 
Details are Here

This poinsettia stamp (STAMPlorations) is one of my favourites
and heat embossed it in white on water colour paper.
I then painted it with metallic paints.
Added a water wash background and a strip
of glitter paper to the side.
Finished with a Merry die inked with WOS
and Christmas sentiment both from Hero Arts 
cut from a Spellbinder tag and some Nuvo drops
to the poinsettia centre.

I am on the last leg of my Christmas cards - 
just needing to write on the inside
buy Christmas stamps and they are on their way.

Thanks for dropping in.
Till next time Cherrio from

Simply gorgeous poinsettia, Ina! Your emboss-resist technique worked so well with the metallic paints. Love the shiny and sparkling flower! The glitter strip adds a festive feeling to the card. Hideko
