Mark’s Finest Papers


This is the fabulous new set “Walk in the Woods” from Mark’s Finest Papers out today.
I stamped this image 4 times “yes 4 times”, I cut 1/4" from the second image, ½” from the third image and 3/4" from the fourth.
I then colored the images using Copic markers.
For the Sunset I sponged on some yellows and pinks, I’d never sponged a Sunset before so I hope is looks somewhat realistic.
I then popped the images from the largest to the smallest leaving the left side and bottom edges flush. I think this look created a beautiful effect. I had a really hard time photographing this and I hope that you can see all of the layers.
The bg panel is one layer of light olive green sponged with a darker olive then embossed with a CB embossing folder called Scrollwork. I really like the look.
For embellishments I added a string tied gold Acorn charm and a two-tone ribbon.
