Rudolf day for August

 Happy Rudolf day! August has flown by hasn't it? I decided to dig out a stamp I haven't used in a very long time. This is the Chocolate Baroque Poinsettia, bought when they were still Graphicus. I was never very satisfied with my colouring of it back then, but decided to have a go with my (now) favourite colouring medium, zig clean colour markers on watercolour paper. I added a few highlights with a white gel pen and a stardust gel pen. With the second card I added a bit of stamping down each side of the base card with Hobby Art stamps from Christmas foliage.
Do pop over to Mo's blog and take a look at the gorgeous DT cards, and there are still a few days to get working on building your Christmas card stash!
Thanks for looking!

I bought this stamp when it first came out too Sally, it's a favourite of mine and I love the two wonderful cards that you've made with it. Your colouring on these two is fantastic.

Wow, that's one beautiful poinsettia Sally, love that it has the text behind it and the papers set it off beautifully

ps. I don't seem to get to grips with the Zig pens, must try harder ! I always end up going back to my watercolour paints.
