Pastel oak

It’s not a brilliant photo but I don’t have time to take another, I’m afraid. As you can see, I’m still playing with my Crop-A-Dile™, which makes setting eyelets so easy, even these jumbo ones.

The image is coloured using Stampin’ Pastels® on top of Versamark® - the poppin’ pastels technique, which you can read about here. It’s an easy way of getting more than one colour onto an image. The background is stamped with Versamark®, there’s a little bit of direct-to-paper around the edges of the Very Vanilla layer and sparing use of my new Linen Thread, too.

Stamps: Lovely As a Tree (p37)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark®, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Jumbo eyelets (p85), sponge daubers (p81), Stampin’ Pastels® (p82), Linen Thread (p87)
