Gigi Poinsettia- MoonFlower DT Post

I'm a teeny bit late sharing my project for MoonFlower this month but I am hoping she was worth the wait!

As soon as I saw her I had the idea that she would sit nicely in a wreath of festive flowers. I wasn't convinced I could make it work, but after four nights of stamping, embossing fussy and die cutting and building the flowers it started to take shape. The flowers are a combination of stamps by my favourite stamp company Visible Image, and sizzix dies. They were so much fun to make!

Gigi Poinsetta is coloured using a combination of copics and promarkers, printed to size to fit the circle and fussy cut. She was a freebie in a recent newsletter, so if you haven't signed up yet do hop to the blog and subscribe by email as I would hate you to miss out. 



I have to say I am thrilled with how she turned out and she is decorating my hallway as I type, ready to welcome any visitors over the Christmas period.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
