A different take on white on kraft!

Here is a different way to use white on kraft paper (Crumb Cake).  I stamped the images in versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I used the lid of my stamp pads and a blender pen to color in the images.  I love the look.  What do you thing?  Not quite as bold as the snowmen on white two post ago but still a great look!


Stamps: Watercolor Winter, retired sentiment stamp
Paper: Crumb Cake
Ink: Versamark
Other, stamp pads (old olive, riding hood red) blender pen, white embossing powder, red marker.

Moving right along on these Christmas cards, funny I hate to get started on them but once I do I can't seem to stop!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend--we are expecting lots of rain here--and we have out Church Trunk or Treat event--hope it clears for those few hours anyway!

Thanks for stopping by,
Mary Jo
