I had some very old clay and apparently it was past it's prime because....
I don't have many papertrey ink dies so I decided to use a Spellbinder's die with the flower from Rosie Posie. In my original attempts I stamped before baking as shown in the video but the color seemed to fade so for my last attempt I baked first then colored the stamped imprint with Copics. I used an embossing stylus to poke the small holes in the flower center prior to baking. I think this technique would be great to make ornaments for Christmas to decorate the card. That way the recipient not only has a wonderful card but also an ornament to hang on the tree. I just have to remember to get some new clay or make some before making any ornaments!
Isn't this color combo yummy! I got it from the current colour Q challenge # 153 so I am entering this into their challenge also. Check out the deets here.

My kids started school on Aug 29th. I can't believe both my kids are in school now! Adoree is in Kindergarten and Tyler is in third grade.
Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you are all healthy and stay that way! Please stop by again!
