Muse 186 - Hello Friend


This is my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Anita gave us this neutral but oh, so pretty inspiration:



I was also inspired by Keeway's tantalizing sneak peek of a new N&T die.

I focused on Anita's:
-general layout (although I moved the sentiment)
-autumn theme and colours
-use of positive and negative die cut
-shimmer

I watercoloured a panel with distress inks and spritzed with shimmer spray before die cutting my leaves. I added a bit of gold ep to the edges of the leaves and set them almost back into the negative space.

I used:
-Papertrey Leaf Silhouettes Dies
-Papertrey Wet Paint

Awesome! I love the black stamping with the coloring "outline" embossing off-set! Just so perfect!

Hi Ardith,

I really REALLY like your negative space, it really gives all the attention to your gorgeous golden leaves!

Wonderful card, Ardyth. Love what you did by off-setting the leaves on the negative space. TY for the idea :)
