I’ve a card to share for Muse today … the talented Cindy Brumbaugh is the Guest Designer this week and she’s created an elegant, floral card to inspire us, with lots of texture and dimension. It just so happens that my take on it includes dotty embossing, so I’m also submitting to Simon Says Stamp Wedesday where ‘We’re Going Dotty’ (as though I’m not already there …) …
I studied Cindy’s card for a while (almost a week!) … and after a good deal of reflection about what to pick out to focus on, in the end I went for the beautiful bloom, the matting and layering, and the dry embossing. My card’s a little busier than my usual style, but there’s still plenty of my beloved white space on show.
The base panel is embossed with Cuttlebug Charles EF and is matted onto dark pink (to co-ordinate with the flowers). The image is from Penny Black … I used a stickeroo from my stash because every single one of my elegant flower stamps is still on my wishlist … and not in my hot little hands … yet. So, stickeroo it was, adhered to white card and trimmed out. I cut a banner, stamped the (Annabelle Stamps) sentiment, embossed it to match the base panel embossing, flattened the bobbley bits a little (they were just too bobbley) and mounted it on dark pink card. The flower was tucked behind the sentiment strip, and both were popped up on foam dots. Voila.
There’s a big THANK YOU I’d like to finish with this evening … to all my fellow Muse players, for voting my take on Karen M’s card into a Featured Member spot last week … it so made my day 🙂
I’m off to check out who’s been doing what in the blogosphere today. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight! Anita 🙂
