Shopping Our Stash Challenge 92: Use a Border Punch

Hello everyone!  Today we have a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash- to use a border punch!  We aim to get you using your older neglected stash, so pull out one you either have never used, or one you haven't used in a long time.  If you don't have a border punch, create a border and tell us how you did it!

I used this fabulous image from Rick St. Dennis- Esmeralda.  I love this one.  Such great detail.  I colored her with copics, and used spica pens here and there.  The papers are from Echo Park- Victoria Gardens- am determined to use that pad up soon!  The metallic paper is probably from DCWV- another item I am trying to disappear!  I used a border punch I actually hate- and it is now in the bag of  stuff going to be donated to a local art supply drop off/pick up place.  I don't know why, but I have never liked it once I had it at home.    The sentiment I did on the computer- one of my fave quotes actually.  Some bling finishes it off.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see your creations over at Shopping Our Stash!

that image is indeed ♥FAB♥... but a really big part of that is you're an EXPERT colorer!!!! :) love the papers and for the record, i love that punch, too, but the main thing is to just KNOW what you will & won't use, and yeah, DONATE the stuff that's a "no"!!! (& then you'll never be in attic-packing-panic like SOME PPL are right now, lol!!!) ♥
