Inspired by Jill again...

Previously, I've posted a couple of cards that I made after seeing the technique on Jill Foster's Inspired By blog.    Her recent video demonstrating how to make a set of cards from Penny Black Stickeroos motivated me today, and I actually made three cards and had stickers left over.    The two-toned card at the left was colored with Distress Stains, the first time I've used them. The horizontal card to the right was also colored with Distress Stain. Distress Inks were used for the rest of the stamping and inking. (click for a closer view)

They are lovely Evelyn.
I saw Jills technique and I thought there is a use for them on occasions when you want a card quickly, they are products I would not use personally as I like to start a design and work it myself, I need that to satisfy my creative urges!!!

Hi Evelyn!

Fantastic old paper effect. I'm new to your blog, but do you emboss?
