Muse Challenge #229 - Get Well Soon


Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Tracey has given us a fun, whimsical inspiration:


I focused on Tracey's:
-layout
-blue background
-colour scheme

I have the hippos, and they haven't seen any ink yet, but I didn't want to be too close to Tracey's card, so I squinted and blurred my eyes and decided to focus on the colours of the balloons and use this pretty bunch of tulips. I chose a very grey-looking green for my stems, to kind of incorporate the grey of the hippo. I did not emboss my sentiment in white on black because that is a skill I do not have! lol! But I placed it in a similar position. Finally, I masked and sponged some pale blue in the background and added some Stickles for sparkle.

I used:

Hmm - squinting at the Muse card; I'll try this technique when I can't figure out what to do! Lovely card, as usual.
