And the inside:
After months of
stalking, I mean, visiting their blog, I finally purchased some STAMPlorations stamps and stencils. They came in the mail the other day, and instead of putting them away and hoarding them (like I normally do), I actually used them right away!
I stenciled onto the newsprint paper, something I've never tried before and I must say, I like how it came out. I also traced around the design with a black Pitt Artist pen. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in black. Both sentiments and the holly berries and leaf are from the same set. As a finishing touch, I added gold sequins.
I'd like to enter this at STAMPlorations November challenge - stamps & newsprint & the sketch
also for the STAMPlorations Anything Goes challenge
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a fantastic day!
