Muse Challenge #206

Hi Everybody!  I'm posting this one for the Muse Challenge #206 and the inspiration card is from Anita Bowen.  My interpretation on Anita's card was how nicely the background stamped and the flowers were colored and found a stamp in my stash that had the same idea.  I've not used this one for years and I'm glad I found it again!


I stamped this twice onto some white bristol paper and colored it with some zig clean color markers.  I cut out a few of the flowers from the second panel and used it to pop them up from the little frame.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment on a tag and gold embossed it- used black cardstock to make a 4-1/2 x 4-1/2" card.

Materials used:

  • Hero Arts Poppy Background stamp
  • My Favorite Things Pierced Square Frames and the second smallest Triad Tags Stacked
  • Rubbernecker 'Friends are flowers in the garden of life' - Sketch Poppy Set
  • Zing Gold Embossing Powder

  4. I think that poppies are the most beautiful flower! Yours are simply gorgeous, and you've colored them wonderfully! They pop beautifully against the black background, too. Such a pretty card. Bev

  10. I love how you have done this card, I would never have thought to use the stamp like this. I always go white, so have to try it. Your colours are so vibrant against the black. Stunning.
