Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Guest Muse Lynne has given us this sweet birthday inspiration:
I focused on Lynne's:
-big bunch of flowers
-dark pink, green, beige & white colours
-layout of image/sentiment travelling from bottom left to top right
Lynne's puppy image is adorable but I chose to focus on the flowers, and capture his beige colour in my kraft card base.
I used new Simon Says Stamp products - Centre Cut Flowers and the Happy Birthday Script die.
The flowers come as a 6x6 flower frame with a flower arrangement in the centre that can be stamped all together, or removed and stamped separately. I focused on the centre arrangement.
I used the centre portion of the flowers and stamped them in the centre of my panel. I then created a mask for that arrangement and stamped it again on each side. I then used Copics to colour the original centre portion plus a few more on each side, leaving the flowers on the edges uncoloured.
I'm also linking up to the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday.
