Muse #2 and Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenges

I'm just quickly posting this picture of a card I made for the latest Muse challenge.

For this challenge you have to respond to an inspiration card. This week's was designed by Suzanne Dahlberg, and so bright and colourful. I wanted to also include the sketch from the Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge, so combined the two and came up with my card.

I took the flowers as my inspiration and stamped them onto my card with Versamark before embossing with clear embossing powder. I masked off a rectangle with scrap paper before stamping to replicate the same shape in the sketch. I then stamped the flower, leaves and butterflies onto X-press it card, before colouring with Copic markers. I used some stamp sets from HOTP for this card. With the sketch design, it was easy to then position everything. I also tried to include the vibrant pink, red and a touch of blue from the original card.

I hope you all like my card as it was fun making it this time. 

Bye for now,

  6. This is a great card Janelle, the background embossing is excellent and I love how you have made the flower as the main focus - most of us took the rectangle as our focus! Janet - Guest Dt @ Annabelle Stamps
