Penny Black Poinsettias

While at our "Group Gathering" in June, I stamped these poinsettias using a Penny Black stamp. The sentiment is from the same set. I stamped all of them with just one coloring of the stamp. I inked up the stamp using Tim Holtz Distress Markers and spritzed with water. I am entering these cards into the Penny Black challenge and also the Christmas Card Challenge blog.

Wow - while linking to the Christmas Card Challenge blog, I found out I was a Top 3 last week! Very cool! I have added the logo to my blog.

For this first one, I used watercolor cardstock. I trimmed the panel down and adhered to the card front.
For this second one, I used white cardstock and matted with red. 
For this third one, I simply trimmed down the image and added it to my card front.
This fourth one was done to simply clean off the stamp! It still stamped so nicely that I had to use it:) I matted with red and added it to the right side of the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
