Poinsettia Wreath





A second post for today, this card was made using left over strips of 120 gsm paper, die cut and coloured with Spectrum Noirs then misted with water and give some texture by scrunching the die cuts very carefully.

Hello again Meg!
Wow! this is a work of art! It must have taken a very long time to die cut, colour and scrunch all of those flowers but it was well worth it.
Thank you for sharing it at the playground.

The poinsettias turned out gorgeous, Meg. It's incredible how a scrap piece of paper can be turned into something this beautiful...
