Muse 177 - hello my friend

Hello Everyone!

Muse Card Challenge 177

Today, playing cards with Anita Bowden who is this week's muse.  Anita provided us a beautiful shaker card for our inspirations. From her card I used a butterfly, color hue, shaker element. For the butterfly I ink blended and water spritzed to achieve the water color look. The butterfly is die-cut, inlaid and backed with vellum. Assorted colors of sequins make up the shaker elements. I like how the vellum mutes the bright colors. I wanted the butterfly to sparkle, so I added a few coats of clear WOS that makes the color pop and purple gems to the round features on the wings.

Hope you're having a pleasant day.

  1. Beautifully done - I like the 'dreaminess' of the translucent vellum! So glad you joined us at Muse this week, Marilyn!

  2. What a beautiful shaker, I love that you used vellum instead of acetate, so pretty.
    Thanks for playing along at Muse, Anita x

  3. This is so pretty, I love how you've used the vellum to mute the brightly coloured sequins underneath.

  4. Very pretty, love the idea of the butterfly inlay. :)
