I actually did the inking a few times. With the color-layering, you can get various shading and coloring.

Once I was happy with the inked background, I took out the Detailed Blending Brushes and added that pop of red. I then highlighted the flower center with some glitter.

  I love that Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp Set for the sketchy background. It is a great set for holiday card-making. I die cut two of the branches and this makes the entire design a stand out.
