Muse Card Challenge #171

The current MUSE card at Muse Card Challenge is this beauty created by Tracey McNeely


Here's my card

I was inspired by:
  • the white heat embossing and watercolour
  • the general sketch - with greenery in the middle, a purple flower to the right and a yellow-orange flower to the left 
  • the stitched border on the front panel
  • the script-y hello sentiment
I used the Enchanted Garden stamp set by Sugar Pea Design part of Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval Beautiful World collection. I couldn't find stems and leaves for the flowers on the right and left, so I improvised and used a Versamark pen to hand-draw them in. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water pen to watercolour the images. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Chit Chat stamp set. Using a black marker, I added stitch marks to the perimeter the panel - because I don't have a fancy die to do that!

Thanks for visiting
