Muse 192

Tracey McNeely is our muse this week.  I loved the off set embossing over a watercolor look on her card.

Instead of an outline stamp, I decided to go with a texty stamp over a tree shaped brusho colored area. I love that the brushos gave me both a yellow and green shade in the same container.  The stamp comes from Penny Black, Season's Wishes.



I die cut one side with SSS's scallop stitches die and added a strip of gold foil tape from CTMH to the opening side.  This is a smaller card 3.25 by 5. I love Tracey's technique and design, and I can see using it more often.




Here is Tracey's lovely card:
