Hello, how is your week going so far?
I've been holding on to these last days of summer for as long as I can before I start on fall and holiday cards. I broke in with a Christmas card for today. It does feel good to have one created and ready!
Sometimes I hold out on purchasing something for a long time. I know.... I know, it's rare. But sometimes I DO! It seems I just remembered that this gorgeous stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Botanical Blocks IV, had not seen ink yet. It's been around awhile but it is definitely new to me!
I inked it with my Versafine Onyx Black pad and stamped on Bristol smooth paper, heat embossing with clear powder. I colored it in with Zig markers. Can you tell I've been in the mood for coloring this week? I added gold details, using a gold gel pen to fill in the frame, a gold embossed sentiment and gold mirror card stock behind the panel.
Of course it needed a sequin or two and some clear Nuvo drops to highlight the berries.
I've stamped out a few of these panels so that I can do some coloring on the go. It makes me smile that you took time to come by my blog today. Thanks!
Delight in your craft
Make something beautiful!
