Muse Challenge #260 - Layered Dahlia

Good afternoon, folks

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter weekend :)

Today, it's back with me to be your designer over at Muse.  I realised there was a card (actually two cards) I made last month that I hadn't yet shared on my blog so I thought this would be ideal for my next Muse inspiration project.

There were very few products used on this one layer card but I love how pretty it is and it's the first time I used these layering stencils.  This was the card I made for my Mum for Mother's Day.

This was so simple to create.  I masked off the edges of the card as I wanted a white border.  Then I fixed the first of the stencils down and blended the lightest colour, then blended the darker shade through the second stencil to create the layer details.  A simple sentiment stamped in black finished the card.

Materials used:

  • Stencil: Altenew - Layered Dahlia
  • Ink: Altenew - Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamp: Altenew - Extra Special

Altenew - April 2018 Inspiration Challenge

And above, I mentioned two cards.  I made this one for my boyfriend's mum...exactly the same but using a different colour palette...

Materials used:

As above but inks were Altenew - Sunkissed and Orange Cream.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you are able to play along this week.
