A Hero Arts Antique Poinsettia

3 Comments

Just when I said, “I have enough holiday stamps”, Hero Arts comes out with stamp AND DIE sets I can’t resist.    You can purchase this as a set too.  I couldn’t believe this was a wood block stamp, but yes, it is.  I did a little white embossing on the background using the same stamp.  No chasing after additional stamps here.  I am looking at this poinsettia now and it’s quite amazing.  The red paper I used almost looks like velvet.  I keep holding back from touching it because I “know” it’s not velvet.  Yes, I guess I am crazy.

I first stamped the layers in Hero Arts White Unicorn ink and my stamp pad was a bit dry, so it didn’t stand out.  I then stamped the layers with Neon Pink and I love the look of texture the two stampings give. I first used Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops in Ruby Slippers and then wondered if I’d like Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops in Silver Moondust on top.  It looks pretty cool.

The true color is the dark red of the card above.  This photo gives you an idea of the wonderful veining on the layers.
