I hope that being on the Muse: ChristmasVisions design team doesn't bar me from playing in the other Muse challenge! Anita Bowden has a beautiful inspiration card, and there's a prize this week, too! Here's Anita's card:
When I first saw this, I was reminded of pretty patterned paper with gorgeous florals in the corners and beautiful colours. So I decided I wanted to CASE Anita's card using patterned paper. Here's my version:
Along with the corner florals, I was also inspired by the rich colours and embossed central sentiment. I was surprised at how much of my patterned paper I had to look through to find one that would work! Then there was all the fussy-cutting. I tried some solid colours for the background panel, but ultimately liked this coordinating patterned paper best. I could have made the central panel the full size of the card, but like the way the pale yellow card base pulled the colour of the floral and blue backgrounds out. The embossing is done in moonstone powder, which is somewhere between gold and silver, and one of my favourite metallics. The sentiment combines two Simon Says Stamp sets... and their current Wednesday challenge is to use patterned paper, so I am linking up there as well.
Supplies: American Crafts textured pale yellow cardstock, gold pearl paper, Prima Introspection patterned paper, Simon Says Stamp Essential Greetings & Happy stamps, Versamark ink, Stampendous moonstone embossing powder
