Watercoloured Poinsettia

There is so many wonderful challenges out there - you know I do have a few favorites, wink, wink.  With those in mind, yesterday I brought out one of my favorite Christmas flowers, and my Altenew 36 pan set of water colors, and just let the color flow. 

Here are my creations... the first one is heading over to the CAS Watercolour gals - they're looking for a monochromatic card... I don't know about you but I just adore pink Poinsettia - this beauty, from Altenew, will never go out of style!

Here's my recipe:
Water coloring + stamping + heat embossing +
dry embossing
 
 
Next up... same Altenew Poinsettia and die, but this one is going to Altenew's November Inspiration Challenge
 
Altenew's Dotted Swirls debossing cover die is so gorgeous - it adds just enough interest to my pale rose panel,
don't you think?  doing a bit of color mixing in the 36 Pan set allowed me to match those inspiration colors pretty easily.
 
 
 
Well.  I guess I'd better get these off to the appropriate gallery - thanks for hanging out with me twice today!  xx

e.t.a.  what a wonderful way to end the CAS Season!!! 
Thank you, ladies!
