Wonderful Poinsettia


Can I just say, I love this set? So last week in the midst of wrapping up some of my other swaps I thought maybe it would be cool to swap a Christmas card for those crazy plan-aheaders. Although those people probably already made theirs last January. My little epiphany was to make a poinsettia out of the Wonderful You set.

A couple of notes about the watercoloring. I like to fill one of my Aqua Painters with Future Floor wax. It creates a glossy look and a little bit of texture between the layers of color. In lieu of matting with another piece of card stock I just drew a wobbly line of gold with my Zig Painty.

Omigosh, Erica, I LOVE this!! So elegant!

Okay, let me get this straight: you color your image, then apply floor wax?!?

WoWzA, who thinks these things up?!? I'll tell ya, if the DH saw floor wax in the house, he'd pass out ... and when he woke up, he'd tell me that he fell over at the thought of me actually waxin' a floor!

~Hugzzzzz!
