Vintage Water Color Poinsettia ~TSOC ~ Embossing

Hello everyone!  Have you seen the Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades Poinsettia embossing folder yet?  It actually came out in August and that is when I'm typing up this blog post, so by the time you're reading this, it's probably "old hat".  But it's still awesome!!  It's one of those fabulous vintage / retro style images that is actually taken from a real vintage postcard.

The Sisterhood of Crafters is starting a new challenge today and the theme is "Embossing" so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to break this embossing folder in. 

I embossed the image onto a piece of Prima Cold Press Watercolor Paper and painted it using Kuretake Gansai Tombi Watercolor Paints
 
 After the completed panel was dry, I rubbed the Tsukineko Essential Glue Pad randomly over the top and sprinkled on some clear German Glass Glitter to complete the vintage look.

 Now it's YOUR turn to play along.  You can find all the details at The Sisterhood of Crafters or by clicking here.  We look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!
