TCC's Rich Holiday Table

The inspiration photo we have this week at The Card Concept is 
Check out that table!

I used inks from Catherine Pooler Designs to stamp the poinsettias and
the leaves, gave them a little spritz of water and then stamped them onto
 some water color paper holding it still for a few seconds to let the color 
set in. Next I painted the background with some more of Catherine's ink and added some shading details.
I love how versatile these inks are!
The sentiment and a few little splatters and this card is done!

Now it's your turn.
Check out the rest of the DT's cards HERE and I look forward to

What a great technique - it looks very earthy and organic. Xx

It amazes me how a few tiny splatter dots enhances a card. I'm going to have to set up 360 degrees of backdrop to do it, I'm such a klutz, but I'm going to try it, and try not to paint my sewing machine, dining table, and the wall. LOL

Hey Susan - it amazes me too about the splatters and the difference a few can make to a card.
