Muse Challenge #27

Hi all

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.
Materials used:
  • 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 :)

Take care
