Every once in a while, I see a stamp set that speaks to me. Of course, what it says is, "you NEED me". Often I resist, but when I saw the new WPlus9 set Pretty Poinsettias in use, it had to be mine. Here's my first card using the set:
You will just have to believe me when I tell you that the colours are even richer in real life. I wanted to really showcase the flowers, so left the rest of the design simple. I used four layers of stamps on each poinsettia -- thank goodness they're clear! I also really like that you don't have to be exacting, they still look good even if all the layers aren't precise. I am going to have so much fun with these stamps!
I'm going to link this up to Simon Says Stamp's current "Anything Goes" challenge. Don't be surprised if you see more poinsettias here in the next month or so!
