First challenge Ancient Rome: using a medium to create a faux fresco look. I could not find the embossing paste at my craft store so I just used the patterned paper in the kit and distressed the edges a bit more.
I stamped the image on the patterned paper in Smokey Shadow and adhered it on an oval die cut from Terracotta tile, outlined in with a larger oval outline cut from Ripe Avocado. I layered that over kraft cardstock stamped with a repeating Laurel pattern in Ripe Avocado. Sentiment is stamped in Smokey Shadow and is from The A-mazing stamp set.
