Muse Challenge #261

Happy Monday! Time for new challenge at Muse!

As I write this post today we are having a snowstorm. Definitely not something I expected in April, but not unheard of. Just yesterday I was amazed how much of the snow had already melted and it looked like we were definitely on our way to the spring. So for now I have to experience spring in a card. I used the new Friendly Florals stamps and Happy Spring dies from Neat & Tangled.

When it comes to making dimensional flower arrangements on a card the process is really not that scary. I stamped my images with VersaFine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder on Bristol smooth cardstock. I watercoloured my images with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a waterbrush. Once they were dry I laid everything out.

Then I placed two of the flower images on my card base because they are going to be in the back of my arrangement. I used the flower spray that I was going to put on top and moved the flowers around until I found an arrangement that I liked. Once I was sure where the bottom flowers were going to rest I adhered them to the card base.

Final step was to put some foam tape on the back of the top spray and attach it.

Beautiful card Tracey, wish I was going to be here to make a card for the Muse challenge can already feel the inspiration bubbling away. But life has me on a journey at the moment that has me taking dad to visit his sister before all his memory is gone. Spring will be there soon, it seems to be lingering with us just a bit longer than usual which is just what I need at the moment. I will send it on its way as soon as I get back hugs Aileen.
