Muse Card Challenge #161

The current MUSE at Muse Card Challenge is this beautiful card created by Anita Bowden

Here's my card

Anita commented that inlaying the die cut was "fiddly". She wasn't joking. I ended up with lots of little pieces that I kept losing - LOL!

I was inspired by:
  • the colours
  • the randomness of the colours; Anita used two shades of brushos; I couldn't find my Color Bursts, so settled on smooshing of distress inks
  • script sentiment
  • layout - square panel, die cut extends a bit beyond the panel

I started by adding distress inks (spiced marmalade, ripe persimmon and picked raspberry) using a smooshing technique. I die cut using Memory Box - Large Olive Branch both a piece of red cardstock and the inked panel. I used a piece of printer paper, where I added adhesive all over, to gently place all the pieces of the inked panel and the olive branch.

I added a script sentiment from PTI - Heart-2-Heart #3.
