Mod Squad 's cutting edge challenge
Although I have made my goal this year to do at least two Christmas cards a week during the whole year and I have reached the number I usually send out, I am still wanting to make more, so I will probably be increasing my card sending list this year. I decided to use this huge poinsettia stamp (and I don't remember the source of that stamp) to add one more to my Christmas stash using the Mod Squad challenge this week as my motivation. I tried to keep it CAS as well as keeping the background white. I masked the background and sponged on candy apple red oxide ink onto the flower and colored the leaves with Copic markers. I added gold rhinestones for the center. I love how the oxide ink left that suede type of look that make this flower seem more life like.
