Hardwood Ornament Real Sugar

Here is my last Christmas card for the month. I used the faux letterpress technique with Encore Metallic Gold ink and the Petals-a-Plenty TIEF.

Come to Bethlehem Midnight Ivory

For this week's Merry Monday challenge, I have turned the sketch sideways. Starting with a base of Naturals Ivory, I cut off half of the front. A small piece of Midnight Muse was turned into Faux Suede and placed down the right hand side of the 'inside'. I took another piece of the Faux Suede… Continue reading Come to Bethlehem Midnight Ivory
