Lord, make me a rainbow that shines down on my mother...she'll know I'm safe with you as she stands under my colors...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! I have another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday card for you today, and, yep...another emboss resist card! *grin* I can't seem to stop embossing things lately.


I used the ornament from Christmas Swirls for Cristina's awesome sketch. Before I stamped and embossed it, though, I stamped the "merry and bright" part of the longer sentiment from the same set repeatedly in Old Olive ink on watercolor paper. Then I stamped the ornament and embossed it in clear detail powder. The final step was a dark wash of Old Olive ink over the entire panel. Here's a closeup:


The set is full of awesome images and sentiments, for inside and outside your holiday cards. If that weren't enough, we have two Christmas sets on sale today! Christmas Swirls and Wise Men are each just $12.49 this month.
