2-1/2 inch squares … there were so many nice choices it was hard to pick only two rubber stamps … http://www.carmensveranda.com/
These are really pretty easy to do. Stamp image with Momento ink. Color image using Distress inks and the Cut & Dry pen nibs; heat set. Rub Distress ink antique linen pad directly onto image; emboss with clear embossing powder/heat set. While still hot, add more second layer embossing powder/heat. While still hot, sprinkle mica chips; add more embossing power/heat tool. Really cool!

These are the six Make-And-Take Tags that I taught at the Loveland, CO & Carson, CA for Linda’s Lost Coast Design booth. Hope you “Color them Fun”! Cherri
