Tropical Twist
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you dropped by for a visit today for a Tropical twist on the traditional poinsettia! I used one of my very favorite dies from our Poppystamps holiday release, Mod Poinsettias, and shook up the colors a little bit of a colorful splash!

I love the bright combination of the pinkish background, the blue poinsettia petals, and the green leaves! Creating this look is a lot of fun too!

The background panel was created using oxide inks in shades of pinks and purples, and then splashed with little drips of water. The oxide inks react to the water, and form light and bright patches of color that make any card unique. Then I cut out all the parts of the Mod Poinsettia pieces in blue and green. I splattered white water-color paint on all the pieces and let it all dry.

When assembling your flowers, you can have them lie flat and smooth, or you could try this fun technique. I like to take a pencil and gently curl the leaves downward, then glue the flowers together. You can make them as curly as you like, or flatten them out just a bit when gluing them on to your card base. Add a few leaves and sequins, and you have a tropical twist on the familiar red leaves of the poinsettia!

Thank you so much for dropping by!
