I used an old Northwoods stamp, coloured it with Copics and a gold gel pen, and sponged around the edges of the panel with Antique Linen Distress ink. For the first one, I scored the edges of the focal panel for interest, bordered with a holly embossed green layer and a plain red layer, and put it on a blank gold cardbase I had in my stash, and for the second I used just one bordering layer, but notched the edges. I love the long narrow card for this image.
The first one is going over to CAS Mix Up. July's challenge is:
I used Copic markers to colour my stamped image, and then used scoring, sponging, and dry embossing for "my choice".
I'll be back soon with something that is not Christmas!!
