Muse Challenge #79 - Happy Birthday to You
Here's my take on this week's Muse challenge where we have a beautiful summery card inspiration from Vicki:
I absolutely love the vibrant red and purple together and I think this technique is really cool. It results in a riot of colour that is absolutely amazing! But (surprise!) I wanted my riot to be a little more 'controlled'. I think that you really can use any technique and still make a clean-feeling card.
I don't really know how Vicki did this with her reinkers (actually, now I hear it was alcohol inks - come on Vicki, do a video!), so I used my Copics. I cut the Memory Box butterfly out of the white panel and popped out all the little bits. I then lifted the wings (this die is still 'stuck' in the centre - it doesn't cut all the way out) and drew the outline on the card base so I would know where to put my coloured dots. I added Stickles to the wings for sparkle and laid the (separately cut) black butterfly body on. The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week - the deadline for this challenge is Monday at 8 am EDT. At that time, you can vote for your top 3 favourite cards until Tuesday at 8 am (even if you didn't link up a card). Results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.
