Muse 124 - Warm Thoughts


Guess who's the surprise Muse this week? I feel so bad - Michele was on vacation last week, and I'm away at Music Camp with Kate this week. Due to late communication on my part, well, here we are!

I do have to say it was fun coming up with this card, though. I actually stamped the Paper Smooches Twiggy Florets daisies a while ago, and the panel has been sitting on my desk for a while, waiting for inspiration. I really wanted the white to pop and figured a bold sponged background would be just the ticket!

So I masked the daisies to stamp them, and then masked all of them at once, created a 'horizon' line and sponged Twisted Citrus and Mowed Lawn on the bottom and Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire on the top. I finished with a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler that I usually use in the winter, but it's perfect for this card too!

I hope you'll play along this week - I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  11. Sooooo pretty! Great shading on the tuplips - orange to yellow looks awesome! Nice touch with a wee bit of highlighter pen too! REALLY, REALLY neat how the "W" in 'Warm' matches the scalloped petals of the tulips!
