Muse Flowers


Hello, Saturday!  Today's card is for two challenges.  I took my layout inspiration from Marion Vagg's card for the Muse challenge and I used the colours from the ColourQ challenge.  I love the bright and cheery colours on Marion's card - it's just so happy!  As well as her layout I was inspired by the embossed white outlines of the stamps so I did the same and then colored my images with colored pencils.  I'm pleased with how the flowers really pop off of the kraft.  I'm also pleased with how quickly I've used more of my new goodies.  I'm determined not to let them sit and collect dust!  Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Elegant Eggplant) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Hennah Elements, (Sentiment from Magnolias for Her) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Coloured Pencils:  Caran D'Ache
Gems:  Doodlebug

Just beautiful. And, those colors are so dark and rich, especially against the kraft. Some kind of special pencil, I would guess.
