So I'm entering it in Muse Challenge 212 where Jenni has given us a deceptively simple card to muse on.
After some thinking that tailed off rather ineffectually I remembered an old Chocolate Baroque background stamp that I've hardly used. I liked it but haven't been comfortable with background stamps really.
Anyway I found some shiny-ish white card in my stash, but decided to white emboss rather than clear emboss then I used a couple of distress inks over it. I'm really pleased with the effect & want to keep playing with it. The distress inks perform quite differently on shiny card
So the parts of Jenni's original card I've taken inspiration from are the format, and the blue & white colours - though I'm calling the soft purple blue in this case.
