This is Vicki's first week as Muse. I was so thrilled when she agreed to become a member of the Muse DT! I love her work - she is so very talented (and she's very nice and funny to boot!), and I have been so looking forward to playing along with her first inspiration card! But, despite its beauty and serenity, I admit that this week's Muse, with its muted colour scheme had me stumped for a while!
This card came to me in stages but the real breakthrough was remembering that I have this brilliant yellow vellum that really adds a punch of colour to the card, as well as making beautiful butterfly wings because it's translucent. And in the end, I'm really pleased with this card that I would never have made if it wasn't for Vicki's inspiration, so thank you Vicki!
From Vicki's card, I used the butterfly (same MFT dies as Vicki, in fact!) the circle, the vertical stripes (embossed with my grosgrain embossing plate from MFT), the dots and the fishtail on the sentiment.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along! Don't forget that the deadline is Monday morning at 8:00 am EST. Voting goes from then until Tuesday morning at 8:00 am and then the results will be posted on Tuesday at noon!
