Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

This week I am featuring a beautiful stamp set by Studio Katia called Merry Poinsettia.

I really struggled to create my card for this weeks challenge due to being unwell & even sitting at my desk for short periods of time was exhausting so as I have kept this card as simple as possible for that reason.

 I stamped & heat embossed my chosen images onto Canson XL watercolor paper and also heat embossed some leaves and the largest of the poinsettias onto a spare piece of watercolor paper and then coloured my images using Sap Green, Undersea Green, Naples YellowQuinacridone Red  Daniel Smith watercolors

I fussy cut the leaves & large poinsettia before adhering them onto my image and then lightly water coloured around my images.

For my sentiment I die cut Simon Says Stamps Believe wafer die and then added some "splats" of paint, crystal drops & a few TuTu sequins to finish.

 Other supplies used -
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
