Muse #54


Hi friends, the second card I'd like to show you today was inspired by Therese's card at the Muse challenge blog. I've taken inspiration from Therese's colours, layout, flowers and watercolouring.

The roses, leaves and sentiment were heat embossed in gold which doesn't show up well on the photo. Here's a closer look.


Hummed and hah'ed about whether to use a coloured card blank, then settled for white with embossing for interest.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great evening!

Supplies
Roses and leaves stamps - Simon Says Stamp
Sentiment stamp - WPlus9
Gold detail embossing powder
Cuttlebug embossing folder
WPlus9 rectangle die
Clear embossing ink
Tim Holtz distress inks

Love the variation in the watercolouring - some deeper tones and some lighter! Thank you for joining us at Muse this week!
