Glitzy Poinsettia Christmas

Good morning!  I love this Single Poinsettia stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, and I've used it to make several different cards this month.  This is my latest version using some glittery red paste and a gold paint pen for the flower.  

I started by masking off the flower areas so I could brush on some green ink for the leaf and stem.  I also lightly brushed on some yellow ink in the center of the flower, but I wanted a little more oomph.  So I removed the stencil and went over the yellow dots with a gold paint pen.  While that dried, I removed my washi tape from the flower areas of the stencil and put tape over the center and the leaf/stem area.  I put the stencil back in place and spread some red Paper Glitz (Picket Fence Studios) over the poinsettia petals.  I removed the stencil and let the glaze dry completely before I assembled this card.  The sentiment stamp and dies are from Honey Bee Stamps.
