Simply stamped & finished!

Poinsettia Basket - stamped in Versafine-Onyx Black, embossed with Crystal embossing powder, coloured with coloured pencils on linen embossed card - Voila!  Embellish with Glossy Accent and Crystal glitter on the red bracts.  The touch of yellow to Ivy leaves add lovely detail to a Christmas basket, as does the cord on the tag.
Stamp - Singles by Jane Gill (Woodware) £4.05 at Japonica incl greeting.

Poinsettia basket again - simply printed in Versafine Onyx Black onto DIE-CUT self adhesive 1" squares. Coloured carefully with pencils and then each sq has been gently sponged wth Versafine Satin red inkpad. The squares have then been placed onto a rectangle of black card - NOT PERFECTLY on purpose, so they look like uneven tiles.  Layer onto a craft card & tag & ribbon added.   I love using these die cut sticky squares - a really interesting and different look for any large stamp or collage.

Sheep have been embossed using Versafine O. Black inkpad and Crystal embossing powder.  Coloured with watercolour pencils for a softer look.  Background print is a long greeting from a set (Jane Gill -Woodware) and placed on the acrylic block in a wiggle for the background pattern.  All edges have been gently sponged with a blue inkpad and sponge -for a frosty look.  I have also added Crystal glitter to lines made with a ZIG GLUE PEN - a MUST-HAVE tool in my opinion!
(STAMPS USED - SHEEP in the Meadow stamp £5.99 and Greetings set £10.20 all from Japonica)
