Muse

Good morning, hope you have a good day.
While looking at some great card designs over at Less is More a couple of weeks ago, I came across a new site for me MUSE. Quite a different concept but I like the premise. The contributors vote for the winners!
I hadn't done anything that would fit and I didn't have time to do anything specifically for it until this weekend. The idea is that one designer acts as Muse for the challenge. This time it was 
and this was her inspiration:-


I loved the stamped rose and think it was stamped with watercolour effect so that's the way I went with my interpretation.


I covered the roses of this old Rubber Stampede stamp with 2 shades of red La Plume pens and the leaves with 2 greens and then spritzed it before stamping. I used a w/c brush to drag some colour in from the outlines then dried it with a heat gun before it went too blurred. The sentiment is from a LOTV set which I stamped with Versamark Black Onyx. A scrap of matching organza ribbon was tied in a bow and then the image was mounted on pads onto a A6 base card.

I ended up with a softer version than I had at first wanted but in the end I quite like the subtle effect. Perhaps I should have used my DI's. Not sure if this is how it is supposed to work but I wont know unless I enter so here goes.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to leave a comment if you can, I love to read what you have to say and I even try to visit you blog in return.
