Musing for ATSM

Good evening all.
Just sharing a card to announce the start of a new challenge at ATSM.
Here is my inspiration card for you.

Holiday doesn't necessarily mean Christmas but I am ploughing ahead with my Christmas makes this year!
My inspiration was the MUSE over at Christmas Visions by Chriss Blagrave.

I was pretty close with my interpretation but substituted gold Inka Wax splatter and embossed greeting for the black of the MUSE, as well as mirroring the layout. This poinsettia stamp is from Penny Black and is one of my faves, the sentiment from HLS and all on linen cardstock. I stamped the blooms with Black Soot DI then water coloured the bracts with a mixture of Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Weathered Wood DI. The tiny yellow flowers were in Mustard Seed DI and a little bit of Glossy Accents gave added dimension.
