Muse 26 - Miss you!


Here is my card for this week's Muse challenge, where Tracey really challenged me with this summery card:



I focused on Tracey's
-theme (penguin)
-technique (sponging)
-colours (green inner tube, blue sponging)
-layout (sentiment under focal image)


I started by masking and stamping a penguin from the same MFT Set (Penguins in Paradise) set that Tracey used and then I placed a mask over him and used an oval mask and Tumbled Glass distress ink to create my water. I coloured the penguin with Copics and added some Stickles to the water  for sparkle.

I hope you'll get a chance to join us - the deadline is Monday morning at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Tuesday morning. Voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

Awwww....I miss you too! Oh. Wait. Sorry. (I'm such a dork...) This is absolutely adorable! I love that lonely little penguin floating and missing his friends. You're working wonders with this set. I'm in awe. Fantastic tribute card. Tracey will just love what you've done. I know I do!! Bev
