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.

Early Espresso, Blushing Bride cardstock, Natural Composition Speciality Paper. Festival of Prints DSP Stack (retired).

Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Early Espresso (for sponging embossed card front).
Antique Brad, White Gel Pen, Gold Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink Pad, Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.
