This is my card for this week's Muse challenge, where our guest Muse is Chrissie Stokes. Chrissie has provided us an amazing inspiration card!
I focused on the red, gold and black colour scheme, the dragon fly (mine is from Impression Obsession) and the idea of using a 'technique' for the background. I chose polished stone. An oldie but a goodie! I used drops of Pink Passion and Yoyo Yellow and Delicata Gold reinkers on glossy cardstock. Then I smooshed it around a bit, using a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol. Very easy, very pretty and shimmery in real life. The sentiment is a Hero Arts die inlaid into the polished stone panel.
I enjoyed making this so much that I made another with different proportions of the same colours. This time I used Ranger sprays in Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed along with a Delicata gold re-inker on glossy cardstock. The reinkers were more vibrant, but this is pretty too! The thank you sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
