My Take on Muse Challenge #134

Well, I have to admit that this is not my typical card, but I love the result.  This is a combination of the Muse Challenge #134, whose muse inspiration is noted here . . .

And a challenge at my craft place, StampNation, to use a resist technique.  With supplies collected, I set out to work.  

One of the things you will note in my supply list . . . Stampin' Up ink.  I was setting out to use a regular dye ink to create a watercolor card.  Here is the result . . .

You'll notice that the colors are very muted, which is a great look.  Keep in mind I was using very subtle colors - Daffodil Delight and Pool Party.  I love the subtlety and the way the white embossing powder resisted the inks.  And do you see some of those watermarks from the watercolor? 

Again, not my typical style, but I love this card.

I hope you found some time to create today.
