WC - Poinsettias

I've had a few Triad watercolor sets on my desk from Daniel Smith. Finally I decided to play with the poinsettia one. I enlarge the image and painted it on watercolor paper.

Then I decided to use a rubber stamp of a poinsettia and turn it in to a postage stamp. Sigh - the lettering bled on the background, but I guess it adds to the distressed look of the card with the crackling in the stamp.

Click on either card to see more details and descriptions. Enjoy


And it fits for these challenges:
Truly Scrumptious Challenge   #67 Distressing
Digi Doodles Shops Best  #77 Distressing
Do You Stack Up  #40 use brown

This is just absolutely gorgeous! What a vintage feel. If you hadn't said anything about the lettering bleeding, I would have thought you did it on purpose. It looks amazing! Thank you for playing along with us at Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge this week!
