|This is my entry to the Muse - Design Team Call and to
the Time Out Challenge #19.
I have recently found the Muse Challenge and very much like its concept. I really like the fact that other crafters can vote what is the best work in the gallery - fair game for everyone! The Muse card club has a design team call for the next term and I really much would like to participate and of course be selected as a member of that design team. They are asking to link up one's best work that represent ones style the best way possible. One can link up only once, so I had to really think about this. The project can be old or new so I ended up combining two of my older projects into a one. Here are the cards that I combined:
I liked the design on the first one but like the the colouring on the second. I left the splatters out since I wanted to give the flowers the glory they deserve. I think, this stamp set - Persian Motifs - is just so beautiful!
I stamped the flowers with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and watercolored the flowers with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Black Soot Distress Inks. I added Perfect Pearls into the water while I coloured the flowers to give the shine and shimmer for them. I heat embossed the sentiment by Altenew, the open flowers and the silver stripe with Silver Embossing Powder.
Here is the close-up where the shine from embossing and the shimmer and sparkle from Perfect Pearls is seen better.
I believe this is my best work by now and I am very pleased with the outcome. If you like my card and my creations generally and think that I would qualify for the spot in the Muse Design Team, I kindly ask that you go and vote my card at the muse on the 12th - 13th of December. I would be so grateful! If you want to see more of my work, please check out the link to my Pinterest board at the right hand side on my blog - it's the easiest way to see my projects at single glance.
I link this card to the Time Out Challenge #19 as well. The theme there is Embossing with optional twist of sparkle.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you if you have the time to leave me a comment. And if you still remember in December to vote my card if it really pleases you, I would be so grateful! Thank you!
