Non traditional poinsettia

Hello everyone! I did the SCS sketch challenge this week (#203 that can be found here) and thought I'd show you my take on it.

The center poinsettia is stamped three times and colored with Copic Ciao Markers in lipstick red R29. I cut a part two of them and then layered the petals on with dimensionals. Next, I got out my melting pot and melted a bit of UTEE and dipped the poinsettia in so that it was totally covered in UTEE. I intended to make this into a lapel pin, but it worked so well for the center of this sketch.

The panels on each side are stamped with the same poinsettia stamp and then layered with black card stock. I added a bit of bling to the center with a gold gel pen. The black corner squares are cut out with a 7/8 punch and paper pierced in the corners.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
