Muse Challenge #23

Evening guys

I saw the new challenge at Muse pop up earlier today and was delighted to see that Anita at My Papercraft World has got the Guest Designer spot this week and very deservedly so.  I've been following Anita's blog for a while now and her cards are just beautiful.  So congratulations, Anita!

The minute I saw her gorgeous card (I've included it lower in this post) I had a vision in my mind of what I wanted to create, and here's what I've been making this evening...


 
 

I was inspired by the round sequins and black lines on Anita's card and these reminded me of balloons and their strings so I rotated the design and made my focal point vertical instead of horizontal.  I stamped and die cut the balloons and popped these up on 3D foam to add dimension and then finished off with similar placement of the sentiment and gems.

Materials used:
  • Stamps & Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Make a Wish
  • Ink: Versa Color - Orchid, Sky Blue, Heliotrope; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Cardstock and gems from stash

Here is Anita's gorgeous design...


Thanks for visiting today and I hope to see you again very soon :)
