Merry Christmas Frame

I loved some of the demonstrations at the VA Beach Regional seminar and wanted to try some before I forgot what they were. This technique is done using just the very edge of the brayer. Just run it across your stamp pad, and then across your paper. Create stripes, plaids, etc. I used Real Red and Glorious Green here. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" from the Winter Post set, and used the Wide Oval Punch to cut it out. It is then surrounded with a wreath made with the Martha Stewart Branch punch. I added the striped red grosgrain ribbon to hang it with and put a little bow on the bottom with a glue dot. Simple.......

This is very cute, Joan. You did a great job with this technique. I saw this on Saturday too and am glad to see your take on it.
