The challenge this week in my stamp group is to do a technique called Q tip Pointillism. I had never heard of that before, she gave us instructions and asked us to use inks. I just had to google it and see what other info is out there and I noticed that most of those do the technique with paint, I was fine using ink, not as much clean up or mess I figured, LOL!
I had intended to use this as a birthday card for my great niece, but after finishing it and then cutting it out, I thought wow that looks like Christmas not birthday, so I went with a Christmas theme, we were to use at least one stamp on it so I stamped and colored the poinsettia, and die cut the leaves and bow, embossing folder on the background cutting that with a curve border die and a strip piece of poinsettia paper to go with it.
