Mama Elephant | Watercolor Poinsettias

Mama Elephant | Watercolor Poinsettias. Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and thank you for stopping by today to help celebrate Mama Elephant 4 Years Stampede (more about this below). I fell in love with their new Floral Series – Poinsettia stamp set and created a simple Christmas card to share in this post today.

Like this card? Pin it now! 

I started by stamping a sentiment first and I went with “Fa La La La” from the O’ Tiny Tree set and “Wishing You All The Happiness Your Holiday Can Hold” from the Merry Christmas Wishes set. The latter was a one line sentiment so I cut it apart to create a two line one, you can also mask a part of the sentiment if you don’t want to cut it.

I stamped 3 poinsettia flowers onto a sheet of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and MISTI (this watercolor paper is textured, so I like using my MISTI to be able to double and even triple stamp images).

I used Daniel Smith Watercolors and went with traditional red and green pigments to watercolor my images. I only have a sampler sheet from Daniel Smith (you can catch a glimpse at it at the very first photo), but I am loving it for simple coloring like this one. And there’s quite a lot of pigment in each one of those dots, so it does go a long way.

I added white gel pen accents to my images to create highlights, wrapped a bit of natural twine and adhered several small and medium clear drops from Pretty Pink Posh.
