Muse 209 - Happy Mother's Day (with video)

Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge, where Guest Muse Sonja has given us a beautiful inspiration:

I focused on Sonja's:
-use of Kraft

Instead of colouring the flowers blue with a yellow and orange spotty background, I used the 4 colours of distress ink to smoosh my paper before stamping the image and die-cutting it.

I used:


  1. Really a lovely card, Ardyth. Watched your video, and that's a fun technique, isn't it?! I love the modern look of this hydrangea, and that you've inlaid it into a kraft panel. Such a pretty Mother's Day card. Fabulous!! Hope all is well with you. Bev

  2. Very creative coloring!Love it!

  3. What a fabulous way to add colour to an image - or should that be add an image to colour?? Wonderful CASE Ardyth.

  4. Awesome colors and awesome idea! Love the bits of white space on the blossom! Can't access the video on my work computer so will check it out at home :)

  5. Perfectly CAS with your very own twist, Ardyth, as always! I really love your style. Great to see how you were inspired by my card. Love the artsy look of the flower.
