MCV46 - Merry Christmas
I love the bold graphic style of the inspiration that Steph, our Guest Muse at MCV has given us:
I am fascinated by how her green panel seems to glow (perfectly appropriate for a 'Shine Bright' card). I guessed which colours she used (and got it wrong! lol!) and tried to get a similar look by sponging the lighter colour in the centre and then the darker one around the edges.
I wanted a bit more red, so I masked and sponged a couple of lines that helped set up my diagonal layout.
I focused on Steph's:
-technique (green sponged panel)
-use of black silhouette and sentiment
-of course, the Steph 'signature' - a Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequin with Silver Stickles in the centre.
-Gina K Mistletoe Memories (retired?)
-MFT Christmas Tree
-Festive Berries, Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn distress inks
- MFT Pierced Square die
