Muse Card Challenge #277

Hi there ~
I'm back with a quick post to share a card I created for this week's challenge at Muse. Tristan is Guest Designer and she has created this gorgeous card to inspire us:


And here is how I was inspired by her design:


Instead of using a flower for my card, I grabbed my NBUS 'Toucan Do It' stamps and dies from MFT, and colored the Toucan and leaf with Copic markers. Tristan embossed the background panel, but I chose to emboss inside the aperture and tried Jen McGuire's technique from THIS VIDEO. I also loved how she added the rolled thread, so I added some in the corner of the wonky frame. Lastly, I added a googly eye with eyelashes, so I guess she's a girl :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Toucan Do It
Dies: MFT - Toucan Do It, Peek-a-Boo Wonky Stitched Window
Misc: PTI - Rustic Burlap Cover Plate; Copic markers; DNC Thread; Googly Eye
