Woodware Poinsettia Box Peel-Off StickerNot everyone is a stamper.  I know, I know, I am a bit of an obsessive stamper… but I do understand that not everyone is confident with a stamp.  However, that doesn’t stop you from creating interesting artsy style pieces!

Today’s creation started as a background created in a workshop earlier in the week.  The card was spritzed with water and then swiped into various colours of Distress Marker that had been coloured onto my non stick craft mat.

Woodware Poinsettia Box Peel-off StickerThe main motif is a Peel-off Sticker from Woodware called Poinsettia Box.  I’ve used the squares from the box frame around the outside of the border to add some definition.  The flower has been coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints.  I didn’t want to cheat and stamp a greeting – so the extra detail of the box ladder is simply hand-drawn wibbly lines and divided into boxes and then painted with the same colour palette.  Something of an alternative for a Christmas card!

have fun not stamping!
