Christmas Bells

Today's beautiful project is from Bev Gerrard.

My thoughts:    Bells … the wonderful sounds of melodious bells leading into Christmas musicals ‘I heard the bells on Christmas Eve’‘Silver Bells’ …  …  I’m just “thinking through” the songs, poems, phrases of the traditional Christmas spirit that is such a part of my own memory bank. I’ve stamped this wonderful Bells w/ Holly stamp in VersaMark ink, followed with heat embossing with Ranger’s Queen’s Gold embossing powder.

ShinHan Touch Twin markers were used to add the defining details to the embossed image.   Truthfully?   Coloring within heat embossed lines is often very “easy”, depending upon the embossing powder used.   Tex’s Tips: IMO, using “clear” embossing powder, or “golden” ep works beautifully with our ShinHan Touch Twin markers or other alcohol markers, while using a ‘black’ ep may or may not cause “smearing” difficulties.   This is based solely upon my own experiences.
