This is my fourth SNEAK PEEK of the six new clear stamp sets that will released by Mark's Finest Papers next week. This set is called, appropriately enough, Seasonal Poinsettias. I'm looking forward to doing some watercolor painting with this set next week!
The color combo is for the new Play Date Cafe challenge (PDCC50) to use melon and green. I thought these would be perfect for a "pink poinsettia" card! I stamped the poinsettia in Versamark on tissue paper and used chalks to color it in. I figured that most other coloring methods would bleed on the tissue, and I love the soft look the chalks gave this image--the perfect look for my faux silk!
And I broke out my new lime green baker's twine for this card. I am SO glad I got some--I'm just loving this new twine!! It's going to be great for all of my holiday projects.
