Vintage Poinsettia...

Looks like I'm stuck in the color scheme of cream, green and red!  "It's OK,"  I tell myself, "I like it!" Really good vintage color scheme and I'm going to use the Christmas cards I'm making this week to send to the other buildings in my school district (it's a tradition!)  I've had this poinsettia stamp forever, never inked it, so I need to send a  big "THANK YOU" to Pam and her Designers for motivating me to dust off my gear and supplies...
I colored the poinsettia with color pencils / OMS and my distressing
is done with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tattered Rose.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

WOW! 3 cards in 2 days and during the week!!! YEAH! If you find a color scheme that works, use it! I love this card, your coloring of the image is fantastic and the distressing is the perfect vintage touch! Keep'em coming!! And Happy T-Day! Gobble, gobble!

Aloha, Kim Mc
