I need more cards for the little boys at the children's charity, but I always seem to struggle when making them. So I tried something a bit different for this card. I found a brass stencil in my stash that I have had for many years and used a light box to hand emboss the image with a stylus. Then I turned the image over with the stencil still attached and inked the image with a sponge applicator. Cut out the image with a Spellbinders die, then distressed the edges with the same ink as the image. Added my usual banner saying with the tiny bow tied with jute twine. I haven't done hand embossing with a light box for many years and it was a lot of fun to revisit that technique.
