MCV - Wishing you ...

Hi Everyone!


This has been a fun time at Muse: ChristmasVisions 83 to create four cards from Cornelia's impressive array of inspirational cards. The wreath was created by very lightly drawing a couple of circles then filling in the space with red and green snowflakes, yellow stars and a few green sprigs. A bow in a light green shade painted with a coat of clear WOS and small clear gems add interest to the wreath. The sentiment is stamped in a darker shade of green.

MFT - hello ...

Hi All!

Another fun day at MFT Camp Create - Background Bonanza.

The background was created by using three cuts from MFT - Sno-Drifts Coverup and staggering them to create a 'stencil'. The Distress Ink colors used ... Crab Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral. The 'hello' sentiment was die-cut from black card stock and attached to a thin black strip with the remainder of the sentiment stamped/heat embossed in white. The 'hello' was painted with a few coats of clear WOS for shimmer. A few clear sequins add sparkle.

MCV - MFT - 'Tis the Season



Greetings!

A couple of fun challenges ...

Muse: ChristmasVisions (MCV) 83 and MFT - Camp Create - Inlaid Made Easy

For MCV 83 Cornelia provided four cards for our inspirations.  Her card with the penguins inspired my rendition that is suited for the southwest Arizona, USA, environment.  (For those unfamiliar with Yuma, Arizona, it is a winter destination for visitors from the cold climates and very hot in the summer.) Part of the design includes inlaid circle and date palm tree that is our assignment for MFT Day 1 Camp Create.
