Muse 39 - Thank you!


For this week's Muse challenge:


I focused on Marion's colours, paper piecing and the inset heart. I cut a bunch of 1/4 inch strips in white and navy and laid them on a 4x4 piece of whisper white. I started in the centre, with the navy going all the way across and then for the rest of the navy stripes, cut them at 2 inches, filling in the rest with the remaining white strips. I cut two hearts (since my focal panel is actually two layers thick) and glued them in. This little Stamps of Life sentiment fit in perfectly!

There's still time to play along this week - the Muse deadline is on Monday at 8:00 am. And whether you play along or not, you can still vote for your top 3 from Monday at 8 until Tuesday at 8.

Totally thought this was gonna be a piano card! So interesting how you put this together and made a cool background with just a paper trimmer. Love it!!

Adore this! Love the split stripes; such a bold graphic look, and then a sweet heart and a tiny sentiment. Love this card!! Bev

Barb said...

love that hot pink heart! another perfectly constructed card :)

Geri said...

Yes, I'm with Bev...I love the split stripes too! Your paper strips are soooooo perfectly cut and snuggle up to each other without even the smallest gap! I love the clean, graphic design and the striking contrast of the pop of pink against the navy & white!

I absolutely ADORE this card!

I like the inset stripes and hearts...that must've taken a little while I'm sure!! Worth every minute though, this is wonderful ;)
