Muse Challenge #9

Hi guys

I've been suffering with a horrid cold for the last few days so I thought I would try to escape the endless sneezing and nose blowing to make a card for this week's Muse challenge.

This week's inspiration card is by Marion Vagg and I absolutely love it.  Although my design is quite different the colours Marion used are fabulous so these hues were my inspiration, as well as the use of stripes.

Here is my interpretation...

I used post-it notes to mask off the four areas to stamp, then scored lines to add definition.  I double-scored the lower panel to highlight the sentiment.  I then matted the white card onto jade green cardstock to create a defined border.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Woodware - Salutations (sentiment); Hero Arts - Share Laughter set (dotted flower); Marion Emberson - Its all in the Words set (plain flower); Hero Arts - unknown set (swirl flower)
  • Ink: Versa Color - Royal Blue, Mint, Sky Blue
  • Cardstock: Craft UK Ltd - Premier quality smooth white card; Papermania Premium Textured Cardstock (jade green)
  • Scoreboard (free with Papercraft Inspirations magazine)

This is Marion's wonderful inspiration card...

As always, thanks for visiting...I'm now off to bed armed with a hot honey and lemon :(

Take care
