Thinking of you @ Muse

It is my turn again at the Muse Card Club and I must admit that I really love how this card turned out.


I stamped the images from the Avery Elle set Petals and Stems in Luxe Memento pigment ink. Once dry, I went over the images with different shades of Prisacolor pencils to add some shading and depth. It took quite a while to get the desired blending, but it was quite therapeutic. I used a Derwent blending pencil to help blend the colours. Finally I fussy cut all the images out and then added them onto the card base with foam dimensionals.
