Inspired by HRR

I have been inspired by Julie Ebersole for a couple of years now. I won’t lie, meeting Julie in Seattle in October was the highlight of my entire trip and I have the fan-girl picture to prove it…

 The Monthly A Muse Challenge over in the A Muse Lounge is to create a card inspired by Julie Ebersole. Sounds pretty easy, but it was actually hard for me to choose my inspiration for the card I’m about to show you.

I didn’t have room to fit the whole greeting, so I omitted the word “sincere” and just stamped “thanks” on the card, accenting the word with a few gemstones I coloured with a Copic marker. This is actually the solid Chrysanthemum stamp but I used a ultra fine tip black pen to draw the outline. I broke out my old favourite tool for this card – my paper Crimper! I love that thing and I don’t know if I’ll ever tire of it – do you think it’ll ever make a comeback? Let’s have a Crimper revival – but no hair crimping please. 🙂
