I was hoping to do lots of crafting this weekend but it didn't happen until about an hour ago when I decided to make a card for this week's Muse challenge.
This week they have a Guest Muse, none other than the fabulous Darnell. As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Darnell has made her card with this in mind. Darnell is a wonderful crafter and her blog posts lift everyone's spirits, so pop over and show your appreciation, you won't be disappointed.
So, here is my card...
and here is Darnell's gorgeous card...
As you can see I've kept the pink and green colour palette and used pretty much the same vertical layout. When I first started making cards this was a regular 'go to' layout for me. Using patterned paper to co-ordinate with the stamped image is great, and now that I have a few more ink colours in my stash its becoming easier to match things up. The floral paper I used has an off-white background so I decided to use an ivory card base rather than white. The rose is a wood mounted stamp but the sentiment is a clear stamp so I curved it very slightly to follow the line of the stem. I rounded off the corners to finish.
- Patterned paper: Dovecraft - Garden Party
- Stamps: Stampin' Up - Both Way Blossoms; Personal Impressions - Mix and Match
- Ink: Versa Color - Pink and Olive
- Corner rounder: Tonic
Thanks for popping by. There are a few more challenges I've seen that I hope to enter in the next day or two so hopefully I'll be back very soon.
Take care and stay safe, the storm that is forecast for the UK tonight and tomorrow sounds like it will be quite nasty. I'm on the south coast of Devon which I think is going to take quite a battering :(
Bye for now
