Pointillism Poinsettia

Good Morning all,

It's time for some inspiration using Prickley Pear stamps .  I chose to use Poinsettia Bloom today and show a technique called Pointillism.  Using a series of dots to color the whole image or just around the image as I have using Copic markers. It's a lot of fun!  HERE is a link to this technique from Splitcoast stampers. After coloring the image I used my Distress Ink in Peeled Paint around the edges then sprinkled some chunky white embossing power and heated it from the bottom of image to melt. Added some yellow and gold Stickles for a little sparkle.  You can go check out the Prickley Pear Blog to see what the rest of the design team has to share today.
