Finished bow

This is my palette

I'm in love with this beautiful olive green!

When I made the poinsettia Christmas card I loved the mosaic effect the embossed work gave the piece And it's the reason I wanted to work it again! This is fuchsia

Using the merlot to give contrast and define the tiny lines in between the petals. I think it gives a lot of depth and works well a monochrome effect

The new planner stamp by Julie Nutting has a curved sentiment that works well with the curve of my bow. I decided to add that tiny word and draw a tiny tag with the embossing pen

See my nutcracker? Perfect color inspiration!!!

Now you have s new use for that gorgeous stamp!!!!
