Impression Obsession DT Theme: Christmas

The Impression Obsession team has some projects to share today featuring a Christmas theme. Since our publishing schedule changed a little, I had some time to sit and enjoy the process of making a new card with some older stamps! This is a slimline card using some of my designs.
There are several designs that came out together with this poinsettia motif - a background, a border and corner, and this topiary image. Here they are together because that's fun to see:

I started my coloring by brushing a base of color with Distress Oxide inks, then misting to let the colors bleed. While they were drying, I laid a stencil over the upper right corner to leave an imprint. Additional layers on the flowers were done with watercolor and Zig markers. I added final shading and details with a colored pencil and a cream paint pen.
