Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge, where Anita gave us this pretty, romantic inspiration:
I focused on Anita's:
Later this year we will be celebrating my parents' 50th (Golden) wedding anniversary, and this is my mom's favourite colour, so I decided to get a head start on the card.
I decided to make a big card (for me, anyway!), so I started with a 5x7 panel of watercolour cardstock.
I used the cling-wrap with watercolours technique for my background, with some blue-y green Catherine Pooler re-inkers as my watercolours. Using the reinkers gives a more intense colour but you could easily smoosh your inkpads onto your palette and achieve a similar look, as I've done before.
When the panel was dry, I flicked Delicata Gold ink over it for some golden splatters.
Next, I cut the Prismatic Heart die from Gold Mirror cardstock and again, out of my panel. I adhered acetate to the back of the panel and created a shaker with Pretty Pink Posh Gold confetti and Studio Katia iridescent gems. Here's a close up.
I used a spray adhesive on the delicate golden die cut - so much easier than trying a liquid glue, which may have spread onto the acetate.
Here's a quick video:
