pad to paper (MIM, SSS)

Happy new week, folks!  We're celebrating Turkey Day with friends here in Germany on Sunday so the week will be filled with lotsa preparation.  But I'm squeakin' in here with a Papertrey Make it Monday #140 entry.


I'm also hooking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is "It's a Mystery." The mystery?  I didn't heat emboss these tags.  So how did I get the herringbone pattern?!?!?  Well, maybe these tags were more magic than mystery, but I used Pink Paislee Artisan Papers for the tag base.  The papers are white but have a pattern embossed onto them which comes to life when you apply a color medium.  In this case, Distress Ink pads swiped side-to-side.  And voila.

I truly appreciate your visit.  Have a great week.
