Muse Challenge #248 - Sunny Florals on Teal

Hi there

I'm here to kick off the first challenge of 2018 over at Muse and I'm delighted that it's my turn to be your designer.

The idea of the Muse challenge is to use the designer's creation as inspiration for your own project.  You can use any element(s) to inspire you, e.g. colours, theme, technique, layout, etc.

In recent months I've been inspired by many cards that Yana Smakula has created using coloured pencils on dark cardstock, so wanted to have a go at this myself using my Polychromos, and I'm really pleased with the result.

I chose teal cardstock as my base and stamped the sentiment and florals in VersaMark before heat embossing in gold.  I then coloured the flowers and leaves with my coloured pencils before trimming slightly and adhering the panel to my card base.

Here's a closer view...

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Sincerest Thanks, To You With Love
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
  • Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos
  • Coloured Cardstock: From an assortment by Stampin' Up

Challenge entries:
