Next week's Challenge #142 is


We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 November. 

The theme for that challenge is Centre Stepper Card

Well everybody here is my take on the Borders Challenge:

I used cream hammered card and layered it with
Gold Miri card and a deep red
Used a round corner punch for all the edges
to match in with the round corners
of this lovely frame Pretty Parchment Frame from 

I stamped my Pretty Parchment Frame
colored the edges and some of the detail with
a Gold Gel pen
I cut the frame out and then
I used distressed ink and just inked up here and there
I used Versamark and Enamel Embossing powder
to create the enamel effect.
I added 4 Gold Bling on the 4 corners

This is such a lovely stamp Christmas Rose Candle
I colored my image in with Promarkers
Tulip Yellow, Buttercup, Amber, Sunkissed pink,
Berry Red, Apple Cider, Pine and Apple
To finish the image of the create a bit of a atmosphere
I used the same distressed ink and just added here and there
some ink.
