Power Poppy Portion Control

Here in the US, we are celebrating Thanksgiving TOMORROW...how many of YOU are going to practice portion control? LOL - I suck at portion control and food self-control! #truth

But I love the challenge over at Power Poppy for November and I'm new to their stamps! Yes, tis true! Their images are so detailed and for me, a bit overwhelming! But I wanted to color a poinsettia that was a soft pink - almost white - on the inside of the petals with brighter pinks on the edges so that was my goal. So many things went wrong in my creation...it happens!

Image result for pink poinsettia
I stamped the image in Hero Arts Intense Black and ultimately ended up cutting it out; I colored the image with Copics. I loved this striped paper but it was pretty bright, so I added a layer of vellum to mute it a bit; stamped the sentiment in Liquid Platinum and stamped a couple partial images from the Hero Arts Christmas Trimmings set and embossed in white.

I was also inspired by this GORGEOUS photo; all that pink got me like...mmmm...mmmm....

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT holiday!
