POINSETTIA TAG

Every week I intend to enter Inspired by All the Little Things challenge and the week flies by and I don't get it done.  So here I am at the last minute finally getting something made.  Bought some Yupo paper so I could play with alcohol inks and just did a small sheet of reds and another of green by smooshing and dropping the inks on the paper.

Stamped the EH poinsettia and leaves with HA black ink and clear embossed (use the heat gun sparingly, keep it moving and don't get it too close!!) - fussy cut - die cut the TH holiday greens.  Arranged on some music paper, added a bit of gold thread and Nuvo gold - done and dusted!
Am also entering this in The Flower Challenge (special occasion) and Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas (mixed media).


Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.

  1. Elegant and beautiful design, Betty!!! Love the vibrant colors of alcohol inks!!! It seems that heat embossing on Yupo works well. I didn't try it yet. I used always ranger glossy paper for heat embossing. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Great looking tag. Love how you used the AI on yupo b'grd. for the poinsettia. This AI on yupo technique is so popular ... time for me to jump in and try it. Thanks for the tip of clear embossing and being careful with the heat gun.
