TSG Peppermint Sticks

Hi everyone! This is a card I made for Sunday's Featured Stamper, which was my fellow TSG girl, Wendy (wendybell)!!

CONGRATULATIONS, Wendy!! I was so excited to see you were picked. Your gallery ROCKS!

I chose to CASE this card that Wendy made back in September. I kept the same layout with all the white space and embossed edge. I changed the colors, added a Wassail Glazed Brad, and used my Tea for Two Special Blend stamp set from There She Goes. The peppermint sticks were stamped in Real Red ink and then I watercolored some Mellow Moss ink in the centers with a damp watercolor brush. I stamped and watercolored the peppermint sticks once again on the inside of the card, down in the lower left-hand corner. The ribbon is from Taylored Expressions.

RECIPE ~
Stamps: TSG Tea For Two Special Blend
Paper: SU Real Red, SU Mellow Moss, PTI Select White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Real Red, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Wassail Glazed Brad, Red Ribbon, Just My Type Embossing Folder
