EstyInspired #31 ~ Make Mine Mud ~


I decided to tried my hand at this week's Esty Inspired Challenge #31. It's "art inspiring art" and I'm finding these to be so fun! This weeks inspiration artist is "Make Mine Mud by Little Miss Pottery". You'll find a lot of really nice pottery in her shop. It was all so pretty that I had a hard time deciding which piece I wanted use for my inspiration.

But then, after looking all through her shop, I came across her beautiful Heart Pendant and fell in love with it! I sure hope I've done it justice. :) I've stamped the heart and embossed with white embossing powder, then put a little iridescent glitter onto the swirls. I've layered and glittered my nesties to emulate the colors in the pendant as closely as possible. The background is textured Bazzill Bling paper. I added a pretty bit of green ribbon and then stitched around the border a couple of times. Hop on over to Ashley's blog and scroll down to her April 11th post to see all of the awesome interpretations of this amazing Etsy artist. I just love how everyone is inspired by another's art!

I think that this is just beautiful. I really love your dry embossing. I can never emboss my image frames deep enough to achieve the result that you have. Wonderful job!
