It's a new week and therefore it's new challenge time at Muse again and I'm thrilled to be your muse 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 this week I decided to ink up a new to me set by Wplus9 and I have a pretty polka dot floral creation for you...
I started by covering the majority of my card base with black and white polka dot paper. I then cut a white cardstock panel and used a circular die to cut the arc shape out of it. Next I used the Wplus9 set of dies to cut the container from black cardstock and then used the co-ordinating stamps and dies to create the flowers and leaves. I stamped the sentiment in black and pink ink and adhered this panel flat to the card base. Then, after adhering the container I did a bit of flower arranging (who knew I was so talented...haha!) and layered up the flowers and leaves, and adhered them once happy with their placement.
