The second card I’m sharing with you is another one inspired by someone else’s card. This time it is Meredith MacRitchie‘s card for Muse:Christmas Visions. I’m also entering this card to Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge (use a sentiment) and Christmas Challenge Extra, as well as Rudolph Days.
I decided I’d have to be a bit looser in my interpretation. And this card is what I ended up with. My points of inspiration are the white, red and pink, the flowers (in so much as the template I used is retro flowers), and the joy which I represented with the word happy.
I started by creating my background. I used one of my new templates along with some watercolour paints. I applied the paint (both pink and red) with a sponge using a pouncing motion. The red overpowered the pink a bit, but you can still see it in places!
Next I added my sentiment. The “happy” is from Altenew’s Halftone Happy. I considered using the fuller sentiment rather than the outline, but decided against it as it would cover the background pattern. The rest of the sentiment is made from Lawn Fawn’s Jessie’s ABCs.
As a final touch I filled in the happy sentiment using my clear Wink of Stella.
