Loll did a lot of masking on her tag so that she could make her leaves green, but I kept mine much simpler just sponging on red ink through the TH Poinsettia stencil. I made sure my ink was good and dry before I added a layer of glass bead gel through the same stencil and then let that dry as well. Red ink has a tendency to bleed when it comes in contact with anything wet (ask me how I know that!!), so it's very important to make sure your ink is good and dry before adding anything over top of it. Once my tag was dry, I stamped some tiny gold dots, added die cut gold centers to the Poinsettias (from a Gina Marie Designs Poinsettia die), and a die cut "Rejoice" from Penny Black. I also added another tag behind that I dry embossed using an old Darice folder.
Wish you could see the sparkle on this tag in person...glass bead gel sparkles like nothing else out there!
