Muse Challenge #222, Simon Says Anything Goes

Dragon get well

Hi there!

My new craft room is nearly complete and I am beginning to get more organised!  Most importantly I have managed to regain access to my supplies and find some time to craft – at last!

I am entering this card into the Muse Card Challenge, using this adorable card created by Kim Heggins:

I love Kim’s whimsical card and have used a similar stitched central die cut feature to highlight the image on my card, and I have mixed ink blending and alcohol inks to bring colour to the card.

I started off creating the background on my kraft card stock base using a homemade stencil and Colorbox white pigment ink with an ink blending tool.  I set this aside to dry and used Spectrum Noir pens to shade the fab MFT image from the Magical Dragons stamp set and then fussy cut him out.  I cut out a circular die cut and tried placing this on my card base, but the contrast with the blended white circles was too harsh, so I decided to add a vellum die cut on top, which softened the look.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used a piece of washi tape to add a stripe to pull the card together.

I would also like to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge for this week, where anything goes.

It feels really good to be crafting again!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!  Cx
