Muse Challenge #22

Hi guys

We've had a dull and rainy morning here in the South West so I thought I'd spend some time creating my entry for this week's Muse challenge.

This week we were given a very clean and graphic design by Marion Vagg, which I've detailed further down in this post.

I was inspired by the horizontal banner of graduated blues and here is my card...

I had a vision in my mind of how this would look but after looking through my inks I only had three different shades of blue.  So the graduation didn't really work as I hoped but I'm still quite happy with the result.  Shopping list for next month...more ink!

I worked with the idea of starting out with big flowers in dark blue, graduating to small flowers in paler blue.  I edged the stamped banner with some score lines, not too easy to see in the photograph, and finished with a small sentiment and butterfly using the same blue shades.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Penny Black - T for Transparent 'Salutations' (2 larger flowers); Wild Rose Studio - Everyday Greetings (sentiment, small flower and butterfly)
  • Ink: Versa Color - Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Baby Blue
  • Card base from stash

Here is the Muse card...

Thanks for dropping by today, its always lovely to know you've visited so please leave a comment, I appreciate them more than you know!

  1. very nice gradation of colour!

  2. This is really fun! I'm glad you really thought out of the box for this week's Muse challenge! Thanks for playing along!

  3. This is so pretty, Neets, super graduation of colour and size! Anita :)

  4. Even with three inks I think this works really well! like how your stamping started out dense and then got more sparse as you went lighter!

  5. I like the way your ink and stamps graduate off the edge. Super CAS card. x

  6. Beautiful card - I love all your flowers xx

  7. What?! 3 blues? I think I have more blues than everything else combined! Not really, but I am a total sucker for a "new" shade of blue. Luckily 3 is all you really need to pull off this look. Very cute. I especially love that little butterfly, the perfect finishing touch.
