Its a total surprise that I have made this card. It was a last minute (Now thats not a surprise!!) decision but the way I chose to do it is so not me and I really enjoyed just going with the flow. It was a bit like doing TheDaily Marker Pop Up Challenge with lines. Just do what you think of.

So I picked one of my many many stencils that are like me many many stamps that haven't been used yet. I decided on this one with little scattered triangles and will have to explore it more. Usually I would use the whole stencil this time I just went down the right side in a messy way rather than laid out in a planned way. I blended with Distress Inks. Then

I added a bit of gold embossing paste. Of course it hasn't fully dried as I didn't decide to do this till there was only an hour left to the challenge (I must stop doing this as no one will have seen it before its time to vote - ahh well I will learn). 

I die cut Surprise in grey and then in black attached the black on top. Used a very small black gem for the dot on the i as that had disappeared.

Time to post this to Muse: Muse Challenge #129
