Muse #70 - Thanks!
Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where the lovely, talented Vicki is our Muse this week with this card:
When I first looked at Vicki's card, I saw my card. When I looked again, I saw lots more. Decorative corners, fishtail ends, sponging, popped up layers, mixed fonts. There's probably even more but I still saw my simple little card, so I went with it. What I'm saying is that often there's a lot more inspiration in something than you see in your first glance.
I used (again) this Paper Smooches thanks die in Midnight Muse, inlaid into my Aquamarine strips. (see below for an inlaying tip). I popped up the panels with foam tape for some dimension.
I hope you'll have a chance to play along with us at Muse this week - the deadline is Monday morning at 8am EDT. At that time, you can vote for your top 3 favourites (even if you didn't link up a card) until Tuesday morning at 8 am. The voting results will be posted at noon on Tuesday.
Inlaying tip (you probably already know this, but it felt genius to me!) Once you've cut the panel that you plan to put the die back into (aquamarine here), put a piece of tape on the back, with the sticky part showing through. When you lay your die cut (Midnight Muse here) back in, there's a nice sticky spot for it so it will stay in place.
