OCC & Ool-la-la

Our Creative Corner - Sketch
Ool-la-la 9 - Anything goes



I used a corner stamp, embossed with gold EP to make the central mat and then brayered it with a brown ink pad using my homemade brayer. It looked a bit ordinary so I gently inked the edges with ColorBox Burnt Sienna.
After taking the pic I made the 'Happy Birthday' tag a few shades darker and it looks much better for it.




Thank you for looking in today :-)
