Tracing Elegant Lines
This is a little bit of a twist on Tasnim Ahmed’s “Tracing Images” technique from Day 7 of the Clean & Simple 3 online card class. Instead of tracing a stamped image, I dry-embossed the card front and traced part of the “image” with a gold pen. Then I colored inside those traced, raised lines with Twinkling H2Os. It had been a long time since I used those watercolor paints, and I’m glad this class inspired me to dig them up.

Thanks for stopping by!
