(2018 c136) Penny Black, Holly


The Happy Holly by Penny Black was stamped with  Versamark Ink  and then heat embossed with Gold  Ranger Embossing Powder .  


Originally I scored the upper left and lower right corners, but they didn’t show up very well, so I added gold pen to the score lines.  The holly was painted with  Artist’s Loft Pearlescent watercolors found at Michaels .   The sentiment is from  A Festive Season by Penny Black and also heat embossed with gold.
