Create with Connie and Mary Fall Week 2 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I have been dying to use this stamp set 'Joyful Christmas', this was my chance to do something with it. I have used gold embossing powder on the image and then coloured it in with markers. I have also used some Natural Composition speciality paper and sponged it with Raspberry Ripple. I just love how the embossed elements of the paper resist the ink.

Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge # 27

Hello Everyone,

The certainly was a challenge, at first I thought this is so plain, but then I started playing and decided it can be done! Hope you like it.

I was trying to take the photo so you could see the gold embossing. I coloured in the raised pattern with a Versamark Marker, (which I might add I have had for ages and never used) then I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I also died some Very Vanilla Seam Binding using a Early Espresso Ink Refill.

Supplies Used:
Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Early Espresso Cardstock
Early Espresso, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals Ink Pads
Ornament Keepsakes and Holy Night Stamp Sets
Versamark Marker, Gold Embossing Powder, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Early Espresso Ink Refill Ornament Keepsake Sizzlits, Big Shot.
