Make it Monday #101 and Muse #1





I have a card for this week's Make it Monday #101:  Layered Embossing and the first Muse Challenge.

Here is the beautiful inspiration card, from Amy:

 


I went with a pretty literal interpretation of the inspiration card.  I really loved Amy's card, and wanted to keep as much as possible.  I used this week's MIM technique by first embossing the flowers from Funky Florals in clear and then stamping the centers and embossing them in white.  I got the idea to use Funky Florals from this post by Leigh.  I first tried this technique on the sentiment on a different card, and the entire thing ended up in one big smear.  This one worked much better.



Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Funky Florals, Turning a New Leaf
Paper:  White, Lemon Tart, Lily Bee Handmade
Ink:  New Leaf, Versafine Onyx Black
Other:  Notched Flower and Turning a New Leaf dies, Canvas/Linen Impression Plate, Lil Inkers Stitched Squares, pearls from stash


Thanks for Visiting
