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
-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


  1. I love the leaves, Ardyth. The misting created a lovely effect. The bold inlaid die looks spectacular.

  2. LOVE your take on Michelle's card!!!

  3. This is absolutely perfect in every way!

  4. Love your card Ardyth, and so happy to see it 'close up' after watching your IG video.

  5. Such a clever idea to do the leaves with the DIs, Ardyth - you achieved a great look!!!! Love the grey and silver strips on the side!!!!! Beautiful!!!!
    Have a great day!!!!
