Poinsettia Petals ~ A Stampin' Up! Card

Today's Christmas card is inspired by Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge #484. I saw these purple and blue colors online somewhere and had to give them a try!
Even though I'm done making Christmas cards for this year I couldn't resist making a couple more after a challenge from my upline to use the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. I don't use DSP much. Actually I don't use it at all! However this paper is like vellum with velvet images on it, so I figured I could give it a try. :)
Here is the sketch this that we used this week. And since it's a mix up this week we could also use the word MERRY. I did both and love how my card turned out. 
Check out all the great cards the other designers created HERE. If you get a chance to play along we'd love to see what you create! 
To create the color on my poinsettia I embossed the poinsettias using silver embossing powder on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper. Then I used ink refills and water painters to watercolor balmy blue, pacific point, highland heater and gorgeous grape onto each of the petals. I added just a bit of water into the refills on a block, then dabbed the colors on letting them bleed together. Once it was dry I spritzed it with champagne mist shimmer paint that I mix with 70% rubbing alcohol (about 5 drops of champagne mist then fill the rest of the spritzer with the rubbing alcohol).
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
