Talk about procrastination! I waited until today to enter the latest Muse challenge - #86! The card for this week is this beauty by Anita Bowden -
The sketch inspired me, as well as the lovely blue and green colors. Like Anita, I started with a round focal point, which is teal vellum embossed with the Hero Arts Classic Fabric stamp. I used my circle dies to cut a circle frame around the vellum:
Like Anita, I cut the word "Happy" from a coordinating color and embossed the word "birthday" directly on my white panel in Peacock Feathers and clear embossing powder.
The most difficult part was placing the "Happy" down because I had to add foam tape behind portions of the letters to keep everything even on top. I'm happy with the end result, though, and I'll use this as a birthday card for my mother in November.
Thanks for the inspiration, Anita! And thanks to everyone who stops by and leaves me a comment - I appreciate it very much!
