Mixed Media Christmas...

Good afternoon all, I hope you are enjoying your day.
My project today is a mixed media
Christmas card...


I used 
The 'Sue Wilson die - Poinsettia Garland' from the Festive Collection
I cut out all elements out, two of the poinsettia, of centura pearl cardstock.
I shipped into the petals on one of the poinsettias just to release the petals and added some Cosmic Shimmer 'Glitter Kiss - Fire Red Kiss' 
Once dry I used Creative Expressions Enchanted Gold Gilding polish just on the edges to give a highlight and dabbed with some
On the vine/leaves part of the first I coloured with a bit of the Cosmic Shimmer and randomly added hints of colour using Ranger inks
'Distress Ink - Barn Door' and 'Distress Oxide - Forest moss'
I dabbed where the berries would be with a Pentart Snow Pen
I used the die 'Poinsettia' by Tutti Designs and coloured the same way.
I used the gorgeous A4 stencil by Imagination Crafts
I then tore a square then another square of plain card, just bigger than the first one.
I inked and coloured with the Cosmic Shimmer, Distress Inks and Sparkle medium, just around the edges, not the whole piece.
I simply just mat and layered added some stamens to the poinsettia and loose ones to fill gaps and added the sentiment.
The sentiment is craft board, heat embossed the sentiment with Gold and Red Mica powders and coloured using same technique that I used on the main card.
The sentiment is a stamp by Inkylicious
'Christmas Tree Flourish'

I hope you like my card, thoroughly enjoyed creating it.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day.
