Mark's Finest Papers



I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color in the images. There is lots of wonderful organdy ribbon in the store. I wanted mine to have a bit of a crinkled look so I used the heat gun on it lightly (Remember lightly! don't ask me how I know this) and the ribbon will begin to crinkle. Reminds me of the gift boxes of pears we used to get at Christmas time when I was a kid.

Thanks for looking and remember to visit each of the design team member's blogs to see their inspiring creations with this new set. If you didn't start at the beginning, see the list above and visit Samantha. If you are already hopping you would have arrived from Debbie Seyer's blog. The next stop after visiting here is Faith's blog. Happy hopping!
