Neutral New Year

In keeping with one of my goals for this year I have a challenge card to share today.  To start off the new year Less Is More's challenge #257 is neutral colors.

And this is what I created!

I stamped the scratchy pines with VersaMark on watercolor paper then embossed with white EP.  I then sprinkled on a bit of Grey Brusho Colour Crystals and spritzed with water.  Don't you just love all the colors that shine through?  After the Brushos had dried I stamped the buck and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

We'd love you to display our banner

  10. This is just stunning. I love how other colours creep out of Brushos. Those sketchy pine trees look awesome in the foreground.
