Muse 205 - Hello


Hello! Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where our Guest Muse, Michelle Lupton, gave us this beautiful card:



I focused on Michelle's
-layout
-script and type sentiment

I changed Michelle's techniques (she used a stencil and Zigs). I stamped my leaf in various shades of Distress Ink before misting it with water. Before it ran too much, I dried it with my heat gun. I love how the colours 'halo-ed' and mixed just a bit. I inlaid my sentiment die and stamped the rest.

I also made a quick video for my Instagram account of the process.

I used:
-MFT Stamps Geometric Greenery
-Mama Elephant Hello Script Die
