Following a Muse with Penny Black

Life got in the way of creating so it is fun to get back to it!  I am trying to get my mojo back by participating in challenges.  Today I am playing along with the current Muse Challenge.  This card at the right was my inspiration.

My inspiration is fairly clear, the woodgrain, a large image and a die cut word.  I embossed the image and did a simple watercolor.
The die cut word is shadowed with a silver paper that was created by spreading Inka Gold (in Silver) onto cardstock and then buffing.  Provides a beautiful metallic shine!

Thanks for taking a look!
