Painted Poinsettias

Good Morning.
Woke up this morning to a winter wonderland.  

I am just working away at getting some Christmas cards done so hope I am not boring you with some more.  I saw a technique that I wanted to try.  Instead of inking your stamps, you apply paint.  I used watered down Brushos for mine. This is the wonderful results of doing that.

I began by getting out my MISTI.  Using a paint brush, I painted the Brusho onto the stamp surface, a spray of water then stamped.  I masked the flower with a mask I had cut from scrap paper, painted the flower and stamped again 2 more times.  So pleased with the results.  
To pull it all together, I scored a border around the edges and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black.

Adding my card to these challenges:
