...not yet, anyway...

This Penny Black stamp set came the other day, and I finally got a chance to play with it.  I first stamped the snowflakes in Versamark on white cs and clear embossed them.  Then I sponged Broken China Distress ink over them.  After cutting down the image, I mounted it on a darker blue cs, tied the silver cord around it and popped it up on a white card with dimensional tape.

The tag was stamped and hand cut to fit the lettering.  I wanted one that was narrow so as not to cover too much of the design.  I added pearls and gems for embellishment.

Someone in Florida may appreciate this as a Christmas card!

TIP:  To adhere a panel that tends to curl after using a lot of inks or watercoloring, I use my Xyron machine to hold it down flat.
