Poinsettia Wishes

This is another early Christmas card.  I used the Tim Holtz layering stencil "Poinsettia" to create the background.  I water-colored Distress Inks through the stencil with a small flat brush.  I didn't over use the water so there was no leaking under the stencil. Once the flowers and leaves were dry I used the bullet tip of matching Distress Ink markers to add details. I then added another layer of water colored Distress Ink to shading.

I wanted a lot of texture to add interest to the background.  I spattered with acrylic paints and randomly dotted with an Irresistible Pico Embellisher.  I added acrylic glitter sprinkle dots, pearls and tiny sparkly stars.
