Cones and Berries

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm guest designing again for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
It's always such a pleasure to join this team!


The challenge is Anything Goes with the Option of Christmas.

I opted for Christmas...



In the MISTI, I inked the stamp and pressed the Cones and Berries on 
mixed media paper and used a damp waterbrush to get the ink moving.  
When it was totally dry, I inked the whole stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed 
with clear powder giving the image an icy feel.

The sentiment has been cut from foil and stacked twice for added dimension.

This such a peaceful card...like that PB stamp a lot. The touches of red and the sentiment done with brass foil work together so well.

Love that stamp - haven't used it for a couple of years so really must get it out soon. Your colouring and subtle watercolour look is fabulous, and a great idea to heat emboss over it.

This is beautiful Bonnie and I love the rustic look of the branches and the snowy cones and wonderful red berries, and finished with that gold foiled die cut sentiment which finishes it so so well. x
