(A few have asked about the 'bling' on the petals and leaves...and the extra flourishes. Those are all part of the stamp!)
It's very difficult to find anything that has more shimmer than Twinkling H2O's..... I have more than 160 of the colors, and they are so fun to paint with. I used this great Stampendous poinsettia image last year to make a few 'dimensional' cards that were painted with Twinks, and I had to try it again this year. It involves stamping, embossing and painting the image on the base layer and then stamping, embossing and painting a second image for cutting and layering with pop dots.
