SweetStamps.com Parchment Challenge

Hello, Hi, Howdy and welcome to this weeks challenge at SweetStamps.com... woo hoo!  This weeks challenge: Parchment crafting with Christmas stamps... For a parchment how to go here... its a lot easier than it sounds.  I emboss my image in white on heavy vellum ( SweetStamps.com has their own heavy vellum that works perfectly for this technique ), turn the image over and go over areas with a stylus tool on a soft squishy surface ( I use an old mouse pad).  Here is my take on the challenge:


Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Pepermint by Crate Paper
Stamps: SweetStamps.com Images: Christmas Greetings and Starflake Medallion
Ink: Watermark Pad by Versamark
Embossing Powder: SweetStamps.com Fine Detail EP White
Microfine Glitter in Golden Glitz from SweetStamps.com
Brads: Recollections
Foam Squares: Therm-o-web

I am also entering this into the Merry Monday Challenge: Anything Christmas

Can't wait to see what you make for this challenge... remember you could win a $20 shopping spree to the SweetStamps.com Store each week by playing along with us... using ANY products you have!!!  That's like $80 a month if you won every week... and you can't win if you don't play along so join in!!!
Happy Crafting!
