Well, whadday think, straight brads or crooked? On one I used versamark along the edge to get a thick row of silver embossing, on the other I just rubbed the edges on the versamark pad. Not sure which look I prefer. I definitely think using the versamark marker to write "hello" made it way too heavy a line.
LOVE my hand colored paper, that is a fun technique to do. Inspired by Lori at Splitcoast.
