Three rich reds make up the velvet petals of this poinsettia. I controlled the bleeding of the red by not coloring up to the borders until the very last when all the other ink was dry. Both cards use the same two greens for the leaves but sport different values of blue background.
The first is the lighter blue. I found a scrap of red cardstock that had been run throught the Cuttlebug with the distressed stripes folder. This matched the lightest red from the image so well I fairly makes the blooms glow. I used blue bordering pieces and added a red foil greeting.
The second card is even simpler. I used a green background to echo the leaves and a yellow strip to pull out color from the flower centers. Blue bordering echoes the background in the feature and a red foil greeting nods to the flower colors.
Next time we'll be 'in the pink'.
