Penny Black Winter Berries

Making a couple of cards for a card exchange; one of my categories is Christmas.  A couple of Christmases ago I ordered several Penny Black stamps online and I keep them like prized possessions in a special wooden box shaped like a trunk!  Although  now most of my purchases are cling or clear stamps, I tend to buy background and less trendy sentiment styles in wood.  Most valuable information!  Here is my card:
Have a wonderful day!

Paper:  PTI Stampers Select White
Stamps:  PB Winter Berries, Stampabilities Sentiment
Ink:  Tsukineko Versafine Black,  SU! Marina Mist, Soft Sky

Embossing Folder Watercolor Background

I have been admiring this embossing folder technique and finally had a chance to try it.  This is such a great technique as as it is quick and simple, and you get a slightly or very different result each time you do it.
Enjoy your day,
