You Are Beautiful

wp-image-2005998778Playing along with muse card challenge #232 with this card. I just loved Anita Bowden’s design which had so many fun techniques like water lifting, masking n using glossy accent on die cut.

I started of my card by sticking two low tack masking tapes diagonally on my panel and inking the area with distress inks. Then I did the water lifting technique using a stencil. I then stuck the black word die cut and the black strip with the white heat embossed sentiment. The final touch was to use glossy accent on the word die cut to make it glossy and a bit raised. Then all that was left was to peel off the masking. Neat n simple with beautiful results.

I absolutely loved playing along with this challenge and casing the super talented Anita Bowden’s card.

Hope you like my attempt. Have a great day!

Spreading My Wings

” I’ll spread my wings, I’ll learn to fly

I’ll do what is takes to touch the sky”

This is one of the quotes that i like. There is something about this one that makes me work towards my goal and inspires me to follow my heart.

I am playing along with a couple of challenges :

The idea to be inspired by this quote is from Use your Stuff # 274 – Inspired by quote

The idea for the out door sky is from The paper players #356 – The Great Outdoors

The colors for this card are inspired by the Muse Cards #228 – Anita Bowden.

I really loved the colors of the muse card against black. For my card I have actually flipped the color scheme.

and this card fits Moving Along With Times #51 – Things that fly

Actually just recently, My son and i were reading about migration and we were completely in awe of the various species that migrate such long distances. What an awesome phenomena. It was equally disturbing to learn how we humans hinder this natural process and are continuously encroaching / destroying different habitats. I guess that’s why Gandhiji said  that :

“The Earth has enough for every man’s needs, But not enough for every man’s greed”
