Mondays mark a new challenge over at Muse and I'm happy to be your muse for this week.
The idea at Muse is to use the Designer's card as the inspiration for your creation. You can interpret it as you wish; using the colours, layout, techniques, etc. You can find out more about the challenge guidelines here.
So, without further ado, here's my card...
On a white cardstock panel I inked through a stencil with Distress Inks. I then stamped with a dots stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed in gold. I stamped the leaf also in VersaMark onto some clear vellum, heat embossed in gold and die cut with the co-ordinating die. Next I die cut the 'thanks' from black cardstock. The vellum leaf was adhered with a glue dot and the thanks die cut adhered over it. The panel was then popped up on 3D foam strips.

Phew, I didn't make this card with a challenge in mind so I think I've done pretty well to combine all those! :)
I've combined quite a few techniques on this card to hopefully give you some inspiration - stencilling, stamping, embossing, die cuts, vellum and metallics. Or you could choose the layout or colours to inspire you. It's always so great to see how the participants interpret one card to come up with so many wonderful creations. I can't wait to see the gallery.
Thanks as always for popping by x
