Muse - Hello

Greetings!

Today, it's time to share my card at Muse. Aileen, the guest this week, provided us a beautiful flower card rich in color.  From Aileen's card I chose to use similar colors and layout, 'Hello' sentiment, and paint the flowers with clear WOS. My flowers are from MFT - Blissful Blooms Stamps and Die-namics. Gem stones in the colors of the flowers were adhered to the center of gold sequins and randomly placed for added interest.

Hope your day is filled with enjoyment.

MCV - Christmas Cheer

Greetings Everyone!

Today, playing cards at Muse: ChristmasVisions 63. Our inspiration is a very fun card from Cornelia. My card includes trees, penguin, sentiment that includes 'cheer.' To give the trees some definition and snowy sparkle I used a gray Copic marker to create a shadow and painted with a coat of Clear WOS. Also, added a painting of WOS along he slope lines. My penguin is a snow-tubing one!!  I'm not sure he's ready to hit the slopes, but he looks very festive with the red inner tube!!. A few randomly placed red sequins with clear gems in the center finish the card.

Hope you're having a fun day.

Muse - thinking of you

Greetings!

Today, I'm playing cards at Muse where Jenni is the hostess this week. From Jenni's beautiful card I chose to use blue flower, yellow center, black-inked sentiment, center placement of flower.  

The flower was created using a stencil and Distress Ink - Fossilized Amber for the center and Salty Ocean for the petals. The flower panel was adhered to green foil card stock. For some interest gem stones the color of the flower were added to the center of the gold sequins and randomly adhered.  

Hope your day is pleasant.

Muse - Hello

Hello Everyone! 

Sharing my card for the Muse Challenge #183. Tracey, the hostess this week provided a beautiful floral card for our inspirations.  

My rendition of Tracey's stunning card includes white embossed flowers, color hues, black sentiment. This card is my Plan B ... the background panel was created using various blue and green Distress Inks and smooshing. The same process was used for a panel to stamp the flowers except with orange, corals, pink shades of Distress Ink. The flowers were stamped using white pigment ink, heat embossed and fussy cut.

Wish you a fun day!

Marilyn

Note - Plan A was trying to water color without the proper paper and brushes. The paper and water coloring did not play nicely together, and the brushes created many unwanted spots!! It's always fun to try.

MFT - Your Are My Happy

Greetings!

Sharing a card for the MFT - 2016 Card Design Superstar. The background panel was created using 3 cuttings of the Snow Drifts Cover up die, randomly placed on top of each other to make a stencil and color blending using Distress Inks (Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade). The frame was made using the Pierced Rectangle Frame. The flower was cut and stamped from the Blissful Blooms dies and stamps and colored with Copics that blended with the colors in the panel (YR02, R22, R32, R24, R29). The small white strip is from the Stripe Cover up and cut to fit. The 'You are My' part of the sentiment is from Essential Sentiments and 'happy' is from Brushstroke Birthday Greet die cut three times and glued together. For additional interest thin strips in black glitter and gold foil were added along the left side of the panel. For sparkle clear WOS was painted on the flower and on 'happy' and gold sequins with custom-colored gem stones to match the colors in the flower attached to centers.

Wish you a fun day.

OLS - Peace Time

Greetings!

Today, I'm sharing a card for One Layer Simplicity 31 challenge - Back in Time.  It's back to the 60's ... I stamped a clock face masking the middle to leave space to stamp the peace symbol.  Then, I stamped a few flowers and hearts. The coloring was done with neon pink and orange Sharpie markers. For sparkle gem stones were added to the middle of the flowers. Using Sharpies and Micron markers the bottom border was created by hand by drawing three lines in pink, orange and black.  The bottom part of the border was hand scribbled to match the design of the peace symbol.

Hope you're having a fun day.
