BVCG Nov/19Lettering Challenge - Day 1 & 2

http://www.yogiemp.com/Calligraphy/Artwork/BVCG_LetteringChallenge_Nov2019/BVCG_LetteringChallengeNov2019_Week1.html

Our Guild put out a challenge for November 2019 to write one word per day in any hand you want - no restrictions... or do them all in one day BIG GRIN and enter them into a draw for a gift certificate from Kensington Art Supply. You know me and challenges... I usually really like them and this one is right up my alley. Also our next Guild's journal has the topic of Black and White, so I decided to do all my words in black & white with touches of grey. I'll probably submit a few from this challenge.

Oct/19 - Side Fold Coloring Poinsettia - Bold & Beautiful


http://www.yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2019/Oct19_SideFoldColoringPoinsettia_BlueChristmas.html
I came across a gorgeously colored green poinsettia and had to imitate it done by Laura Jane using The Ton "Poinsettia Close Up" background stamp. You can see her post HERE. I don't have this particular stamp from 2017, so I hand drew my interpretation of the image. I have since made it in 4 other colors beside the green one...

This is the 5th of 5 cards I made with the Poinsettia image.
