Sue Wilson's Poinsettia

I had to use that beautiful die set again.  And I wanted to show you a variation on the technique I covered in the previous post.

I'll start with my shopping list:

Sue Wilson Poinsettia Die:Sue Wilson Poinsettia
Couture Creations Joy: Joy Die
Pine Cones: Finishing Touches
Cosmic Shimmer Glitters: Glitter Jewels Set
Double sided Adhesive Sheets: Double sided adhesive sheet

And this is where we're headed:

Have a look at the post previous to this to see how to make the lovely sparkly poinsettia, it's precisely the same process - but to set the colour I have simply applied ink to the sparkle after I have die cut the petals.  This allowed me to graduate the colour a little.  I used a rich red brilliance pad, and just sponged the colour on.  As it's a brilliant pad it will dry on the glitter.  I decided not to use the edge die for this one, just to see what it would look like - and I'm really happy.

Cut the Joy shadow die from decorative red paper, and the actual word out of white card. I stuck the red down flat, and the white I added 3D foam.  I dotted a little gold glitter glue on the y and next to the J: 

To finish this very simple, but very effective card, I added my little fir cones from the Creative Expressions Finishing Touches collection.  I split the cones up, as they are wired together, but I wanted to place them singularly.

A little glitter/cinnamon powder in the centre of the flower finishes my card.
