Welcome to a Muse challenge post. This is one of my favourite challenges, and I've been absent for awhile, focussing on outdoor pursuits, but am excited to dive back in on this rainy, fall day.
If you've seen the card showcased over at Muse for inspiration, you may be wondering how on earth I got to here from there?
Good question! I started out with some lovely weed-type stamps, and did some silhouettes, adding white embossing and sponging on top like Karen M did above, but wasn't overly impressed with my results. I decided to change things up and try some leaves instead, a move that was inspired by this empty Kleenex box:
Once I had the silhouette background stamped, I couldn't bring myself to add embossing or sponging to it because it looked somehow "finished", so this is what I ended up with.
Thanks for stopping by,
