I'm spending today at home doing bits and bobs so thought I'd have a quick break to make a card for this week's Muse challenge. This week we have a gorgeous card created by Tracey McNeely to use as our inspiration. Tracey's cards always have a very fresh and clean feel and this one is no exception (see Tracey's card further down in this post).
Here is my interpretation this week...
I mimicked the layout and colour scheme although decided to use clusters of small flowers taking the place of the large blooms. The flowers didn't look finished without their centres so I opted to use Narcissus Versa Color ink which is a creamy yellow. So, in place of the clear sequins used on the Muse card, I chose some creamy peach pearls to finish off.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Flower Arrangement and Leafy Accents
- Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Flower Arrangement
- Ink: Versa Color - Olive, Pink, Heliotrope and Narcissus; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Pearls from stash
- Tools: Fiskars Corner Edgers - Rounder
I like the finished result of my card but don't think its a patch on Tracey's creation, below. She has such unmistakable great style.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope I manage to make your visits worthwhile.
That's all from me today, I'm off out tonight for a long-awaited carvery. No doubt it will ruin my diet this week but I haven't had a lovely roast in a long time and its my week off so I feel I can have a treat! I'll just go easy on the roast potatoes :)
