I really love the Tim Holtz Poinsettia die and embossing folder! Used together they create a really gorgeous flower.
I cut several out of watercolor paper. I found that watercolor paper is great for using Distress Stains on - they absorb the color but don't pill up AND they give you a really great impression when you use them in the embossing folder.
The key to making the flower so vintage and sparkly - is to use a combination of Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint and Dry Distress Glitter. Love how they turned out - they have a bit of a vintage porcelain flower look when you see them up close.
I created a tutorial that you can watch here or on YouTube if you want to see the details of how I created the cover for my December Daily.
Hope you have a great week...and be sure and save some time for creative play!
