The peppers for the fajita recipe came on a Styrofoam tray which I turned into a stamp by cutting off the edges and drawing into.  It is easy to make impressions just using both ends of a pencil.  Pressing the open end of a bottle down makes circles.  These two samples have quite a few layers of acrylic pressed onto watercolour paper which I applied with a sponge and a brush. Gold and silver paints added a Christmas glow. The cards are in the mail. We will taste the Fajitas Christmas Eve.
