Muse 125 - Thanks


Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge, where DT Member Anita has provided us with this funky inspiration:




I took it a step or two further down the 'graphic' scale and simplified by focusing on 3 main elements

1) dots (although I kept all mine the same size)
2) colours
3) black sentiment in similar font, placed on the right

I used a Simon Says Stamp row of circles die, placed off to the right so only 6 holes were cut. I coloured the dots with copics - my colours aren't exactly right (should have tested them first! lol!) but I like them. I then inlaid them back into their holes so there's minimal dimension.

You have until Monday morning to join us  - at that time voting will open and you can vote for your three favourites until Tuesday morning. Voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

We are just about to head up to pick up Kate from her horseback riding camp - expect pictures in my next post!

Beautiful card; thank you for sharing your "thinking" and how you arrived at this card from Anita's beautiful MUSE. I wondered how you interpreted the MUSE. Inspiring work!

I love how you break a card down and recreate it as a totally 'Ardythed' version! Love this graphic design, so clever xx

Very impressed by this crisp ultra clean design. I don't know how you do it, when I attempt something like this it ends up looking bland,
