Poinsettia Babe

Poinsettia Babe - At Seems a Little Sketchy, our sponsor for this challenge is Delicious Doodles. The have some some awesome images. I chose Christina for this challenge because I still need Christmas cards, but I was very intrigued by the Medusa's daughter image, as well as the image of a dragon with eggs. I hope to get a change to work with them sometime in the near future.
Here is our sketch for this fortnight. Jenn does such a great job designing the sketches.

My DP is K & Company's Visions of Christmas. I distressed with Vintage Photo ink.
"Christina" is colored with Copic's and I used a gold Spica pen for the center of the poinsettias. I printed the image twice and colored and cut the poinsettias on the second image, so that I could pop it up. I did the same thing on the center poinsettia in her hair.

For my poinsettia, I cut 2 large and 1 small layer of the poinsettia from the Joy of the Season Cricut cartridge. I inked with Antique Linen and Forest Moss. Then I shaped with a little, stacked them, then added some beads to the center.
