Muse Challenge 161 - Many Thanks


Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Anita gave us this beauty as inspiration:



I usually focus on colours, but chose to focus mainly on techniques this week - Anita's watercoloured her panel (although she used Brushos - so cool) and inlaid her pretty die into (and outside of!) it.

I'm also linking up to Addicted to CAS where the Code Word is Inlaid Dies:



I used:
-Essentials By Ellen Folk Heart Dies
-Essentials By Ellen Many Thanks
-Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours

Loving this one, Ardyth. Those colours on your heart look beautiful and they pop so much more than I would have thought on kraft xx

Loving the inlaid sentiment, but also the fact that everything is still flat! Beautiful!
