Deal of the Week

In this sample I've used the beautiful new Medallion Background Stamp. This is one of the make n' takes at my workshop tonight. I've used a brad from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit to embellish the center. If you notice, it has a bit of color on it.

I took the brad and smooshed it in a Chocolate Chip Craft Pad the wiped off the excess. The ink gets in the grooves and adds color. Isn't that cool?!

To make this card I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I took my Stampin' Pastels and a Dauber and colored over the versamarked image. This technique is called poppin' pastels. As you rub the chalk color over the image, it pops out. I used So Saffron for the center and Chocolate Chip for the outside. This is a simple but very effective technique.
