Muse Inspiration.....

Hello everyone: I have a card I to share with you today for the Muse challenge, our Muse this week is Anita Bowden , I'm also entering the Ellibelle's Creative Moments Let's Color Linky Party 3,"Anything goes with something colored" challenge.  Here is my card.


I embossed a panel of Ninah Solar White card stock with a Cuttle Bug Music Notes embossing folder then, I stamped one of the images of the Power Poppy stamp set called Countryside Bouquet Delux , onto a piece of Vellum with Stazon Dove Gray ink and colored it on the underside with SU markers in Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and More Mustard. I added a bit of highlights and definition to the petals with a Prismacolor pencil #P901, Indigo Blue. I die cut the word Joy with THIS Penny Black die set called "Love and Joy". 
I attached the Vellum with glue dots and placed a light blue Rhine Stone to cover the dot.  The butterfly is a sticker, I thought it's colors would compliment the flowers and the simple design very well.  


Here is a picture of the finish inside.

The frame is from the retired Flourishes set called "Country Charm", I seem to grab this frames a lot, I just posted THIS card on February 12th., I love the beautiful design on all 3.

This is the Muse card that inspired mine.

I hope you give this challenges a try. Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping. Hugs from Maria.

Love the vellum flowers also. I don't know why I never think to use vellum. Like the musical notes behind JOY. Sing out the JOY of wildflowers!

Thank you Lisa, Vellum is fun and beautiful to work with, you just have to be careful and let the ink dry or help it along with the heat gun watching out so you wont burn it. I love the look of it, so soft and ethereal. I thought the embossing folder really look great with the sentiment die cut.

Love your interpretation of Anita's MUSE card; the use of vellum is inspired!

Thanks Sonny, I always love the look of Vellum, I don't use it enough but I will in the future.
Now, does anything looks familiar to you on this card?????

Very pretty Maria! That blue die cut matching your pretty flower looks great against the white embossed panel !

Thank you Sue, Vellum always looks very lovely.

Thanks my friend, I was lucky I still had a piece of scrap in this color, I colored the flowers before I even knew if I had anything to die cut the sentiment, sheeesh!!
