I did not set out to do 3 challenges when I was thinking of doing my March Christmas card challenge, but polished stone sounded interesting, the sketch was clean & simple, and the pinecone & masculine feeling card needed magic mesh!
I was trying the Polished Stone technique with Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss & the Zig Painty gold ink. I guess I got too carried away and smooshed and swirled too much. All you can see is a brown-ish paper with gold splotches. So, I went with the look and used the pinecone stamp image.
I was trying for a masculine Christmas card as I have some male friends that I send cards to. I also didn't want them to be "cute".
I only made 6 of these. I think I can improve on the design, colors, etc. Maybe next month.
