Muse Card Challenge #190

Joining in at Muse, where the Muse card was created by Estelle TBT.


I'll be honest. I was going to skip this week because I really didn't know what to do. I kept coming back to stare at Estelle's card.

I was inspired by:
- the woodgrain background
- the triple die cut - grey, pink, dark red
- bow
- single word sentiment
- basic sketch/layout of card

This is what I came up with

I started by inking up a piece of cardstock with distress inks (hickory smoke, spun sugar, fired brick) and ink blending tools. I then used the Simon Says STAMP Heart of Roses die to die cut the heart.  So instead of having 3 die cuts, I used all three colours for my die cut. For the background, I used an embossing folder to create the woodgrain.  I moved the bow to the top of the heart. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Thanks stamp set.
