Muse 190 - Thank You


Here's my card for this week's Muse, where we have a Guest designer, Estelle. Here's her inspiration:



I focused on Estelle's:
-colours
-3 leaf images in a row
-overlapping colour
-grateful theme

I was also inspired by a technique in Debby Hughes' video and cards where she masked her images and sponged colour around them.

Rather than creating 3 separate boxes of colour, I wanted them to blend, to represent the way Estelle has overlapped her die cut leaves.

I used:
-WPlus9 Happy Wishes
-WPlus9 That is All
