Muse 81/OLS 8


This card has quite a combination of inspiration sources.

First, this week's Muse, by Marion:



Second, the colour palette for OLS8 - Shades of Summer:



and third, this gorgeous, gorgeous card (also inspired by OLS8) by Julia Altermann


Distress Arrow Sentiment-1

I cut a Papertrey daisy out of Post-it notes and laid it on my card. I then taped down a Kelly Purkey stencil, creating a frame. Yes, my friends, I used a stencil. I even enjoyed it! I used Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn distress inks - I love how they blend to create additional colours! I finished it with a single pink pearl.

There's still time for both these challenges: the deadline for Muse is Monday at 8 am EDT. You can then vote for your favourites until Tuesday morning. Results of the vote will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

OLS runs until Sunday at midnight.

Yay for stencils, Ardyth ... as deliciously precise as your stamping ... and with just a hint of gentle softness around the edges! Soooo pretty! Anita :)

I love stencils but never thought about putting a die cut under it. That daisy just pops out of the wonderfully blended lines. Thanks for the idea.
