Muse #142 - Sending Aqua Love

Hi guys

There's a new challenge just starting over at Muse and I'm delighted to be your muse again for this week's challenge.

After making a few Christmas cards recently it was refreshing to make a non-festive card to hopefully inspire you.

Teals, turquoises and aquas are my absolutely favourite shades, especially when paired with white so that's where I started and here's the result...

I masked a horizontal section on a cardstock panel and stamped the leaves in aqua pigment ink.  I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added double score lines above and below the embossed section to add some definition before adhering the panel to the card base on 3D foam.  I die cut a stitched tag and stamped the sentiment, adhered to the panel and accented with a couple of turquoise die cut hearts.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Uniko - Natures Treasures II; Clearly Besotted - Many Mini Messages
  • Ink: Versa Color - Seafoam; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Rubber Stampede - Clear
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Traditional Tag Stax; Lawn Fawn - Hearts

Challenge entries:

Creative Inspirations - Challenge #335 - Anything Goes
CAS on Sunday - Challenge #71 - Tag It

I hope you will find some inspiration from my design and hope you'll join in the challenge this week.

Bye for now
