Other People's Stuff

Last weekend was crafty get-together time at my house! Ardyth, Emily and Tracey made the trek so we could eat, chat and even craft a bit. ;) Then this week I saw the current Muse card inspiration by Tracey, and knew I had the perfect image from the day that I could use! 
This is Tracey's card: 


And here is the flower I stamped, embossed and coloured last Saturday: 

Photo and thumb courtesy of Ardyth. 

The card inspiration is Tracey's, the stamp and die are Ardyth's, and the gorgeous watercolour powder is Emily's! At least the ink and embossing powder are mine. :D The watercolour paper, too. The photo doesn't do it justice, but the Cosmo Cricket powder has the most amazing shimmer! As it was already die cut, I couldn't make a one-layer panel the way Tracey did, but I did use my own green and purple powders to make a similar style background. I also used a die to cut my panel before layering on a cream card base. Inspired by Tracey's black sentiment, I found a label-style sentiment deep in my stash. Here's how it all came together... 


Perhaps you'll be inspired, too! 


Supplies: Stampin' Up very vanilla cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, unknown sentiment strip, Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony stamp & die, Versamark ink, pale gold pearl embossing powder, Cosmo Cricket/Julie Comstock candy pixie paint, Magenta Nuance purple & cerulean watercolour powders, My Favorite Things Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched die, pop-dot tape

Lindsey because I saw that gorgeous flower come to life at your house I can vouch for how utterly gorgeous it is. The awesome effect from the pale gold pearl embossing powder and the Cosmo Cricket paint--stunning. Love your watercolour powder background--turned out lovely! Thank you for sharing with us at Muse this week!

This is such a gorgeous card, the background, the flower, the colours everything. I want to come one day to eat, chat, play.
