Today Is A New Beginning

Today I am showcasing a mixed media card  using my newly released Border Stamp "Brush Flower" #234, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I am so thrilled with this stamp, the detail is fantastic and the background elements really add so much interest to the design.

I am loving using embroidery hoops in my artwork and this smaller size worked perfectly for my card.
This picture shows the detail in the background and also the added layer from the Lotza Dotz Stencil. I used Distress Oxides Fossilized Amber and Hickory Smoke, a new favourite colour palette for me at the moment.
I used a resist technique in the background and then added my inks, applying the inks to a piece of Acetate and then smooshing the ink across the card.
I love adding some touches of hand stitching to my designs, it adds a wonderful textural element.
Of course I had to add some random book pages to the background along with some delicate splatters of paint.
Thanks you so much for stopping by and for all your wonderful feedback regarding my new designs. I cannot wait to see what you all create with them. Tracy x x

So beautiful Tracy! I loved when you demoed this on Hochanda, the colour tones are wonderful and I love the way you added the bead to the embroidery hoop. You really do have some amazing ideas and you always inspire!
