Non-Traditional Poinsettia

Just a quick stop to post my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  It's back to Christmas for this one.  The theme is anything goes, with optional Christmas on the PB challenge.  
I used the PB stamp Scarlet Majesty.  I used Arteza Real Brush Pens and water with my Misti directly onto the stamp, using my Misti so that I could add colors as much as I needed.  I usually start with my lightest, and add darker shades and values as I go.

The verse is an older PB stamp.  I added some distress ink and splattering onto the background, then mounted the panel onto a green card base.  A gold cord with some added beads I strung on and tied on with a knot. 

That's it for today.  Hope you are inspired to play along at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge with us this month.
