During Blogtoberfest, I had a theme called Buy it Use it, but have decided to rechristen it as Buy it - Try it. I like the sound of it better and also BITI is much easier to say than BIUI :-)
I bought this zentangle Christmas tree from Personal Impressions a few weeks ago, so it still counts as new! I also bought some zentangle baubles at the same time, they'll be coming up soon :-) The tree was stamped and embossed in white, then shades of red and green distress ink were applied over the embossing. I added photo corners (Martha Stewart punch) for a bit of pop.
This is the blue version. I have left it quite simple, just rounding two opposite corners.
I do like this technique, funny how things come around again as I remember doing it several years ago and all of a sudden it's trendy again!
I am entering the red/green card into the Craft Stamper Take it Make it challenge for December.
