Muse 36 - Thanks
For this week's Muse Challenge, inspired by this beautiful card by our Guest Muse, Karen M
I focused on Karen's cool colour scheme, the black embellishments and the little dots. I started by creating plaid cardstock with 3 blue copic markers and then I cut out the petals using Paper Smooches and Papertrey dies. (I cut a solid shape using the bigger leaf die and then cut it again with the smaller one to create outline petals). I glued them down only in the centre, so that they are curving up a bit on the edges to create some dimension. I was thinking a nice big black brad would work nicely to hold this flower together. However, no nice big black brad on hand, so I cut 3 circles from black cardstock and stuck them all together. I added little dots with a black gel pen and finished it off with a sentiment.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us at Muse this week - the deadline is Monday at 8:00 am EDT. Even if you can't make a card, please make sure you come back to vote on your favourite 3 projects from Monday at 8:00 am to Tuesday at 8:00 am. Results will be posted on Tuesday at noon!
