Pretty Patterns

Our challenge this week at Sweet Stamps is to use a Medallion

I have this fascination with these designs and really had some fun playing with this challenge this week.
 This first card I stamped the Square Cross Medallion 427 white white ink on Vellum. It was cut out as quick as can be with my 4split prong tool. Have you seen this tool yet? If you pop over to Sweet Stamps Store there is a link to Stacey's videos use this great tool- you will want one let me tell you.
Matted the image with some papers in my stash then embossed that quick little Just For You sentiment.
Here is a close up of the coloring just a few soft Copic colors on the backside.
On My second card I stamped the Square Cross medallion with white ink on vellum once again, then cut out with my 4 split prong tool.After coloring with my Copics,
I decided to mat with some black card stock and then placed on this fun design paper I had.
I even found some fun weave ribbon to use from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hope you play along this week - wouldn't you love to win a $20.00 credit to use in the store?
