Happy Monday and time for this week's new Muse challenge!
For Muse this week I used the 'new to me' Concord & 9th Lace Leaf and Happy Words stamp sets. I used my MISTI to assist me for all parts of my card. It is invaluable for lining up and getting crisp impressions especially when using watercolour paper.
I started off by inking up the watercolour shadow leaf with Distress Ink and then I misted it with water before stamping it on to a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper. Once it dried completely I inked up the lace leaf using Versamark ink and stamped it over the watercolour shadow slightly offset. Then I embossed the image with gold embossing powder. NOTE: Doing two techniques like this on a one layer card can be kind of scary. So I was sure to prep the panel with my embossing buddy well so that I didn't get any stray embossing powder where I didn't want it.
I trimmed the panel down so that I could add a 1/4" strip of gold sparkle paper down the right hand side. Once trimmed I stamped my sentiment using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The sentiment was created using both stamp sets.
