Muse 98 - Happy Birthday


I love Marion's fun, whimsical Muse this week:




And I love all the fun, whimsical interpretations in the challenge gallery. I chose to focus on the colour scheme and layout but changed the feeling a bit.

I cut the Penny Black flower once in white and 3 times in black and stacked them all together. I sponged the white layer with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire and then popped a yellow (sponged with Marmalade) centre on top. I coated the whole thing in Glossy Accents and added an Ink Essentials (oops - Expressions in Ink) sentiment.

There is still a little time to play along - the deadline is Monday at 8 am. Voting will start at that time and continue until 8 am on Tuesday morning. Results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

And that will be it from Muse until 2015! We'll take a little break over the holidays and return with DT Member Vicki Dutcher on January 5.
