Well, another weekend comes to an end but its been a gorgeous one down here in the South West so I can't really grumble that it will soon be time to return to work in the morning.
The card I'm sharing with you here is one that I've made for the latest challenge at Muse, as well as a few others I'll list further down. I've missed a few Muse challenges lately so wanted to have a go at this one. Teals and turquoises are my favourite colours right now so when I saw Marion Vagg's card I knew I wanted to CASE it and here's how I did...
I found a flourish stamp I've never used before, it's from a Hero Arts set which I think was free with a publication ages ago as it has no property packaging. I teamed this us with some stripes and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted (of course!). And yes, it's another one layer card! I can't seem to stop :) The photo is showing the colours a little bluer than they are in real life, its a little more teal-toned than it looks. My camera always does funny things with blues and purples, but I'm no photographer so have to just go with the flow! :D
This just involved a little bit of masking over the stripes to stamp the flourishes before I coloured them in with FlexMarkers.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Basic Stripes and Many Messages; Flourish by Hero Arts
- Ink: Versa Color - Lapislazuli and Turquoise; Memento - Tuxedo Black
- FlexMarkers: Navy Blue, Surf Blue, Duck Egg
And here's Marion's gorgeous creation. Mine's not a patch on this!
I am also linking this card up to the following challenges:
CASology - Week 100 - Celebrate
One Layer Simplicity Challenge #6 - I've Been Framed (one layer card with a border or a frame)
Dream Valley - Challenge 84 - Monochrome
DJ Kard Kreations - NBUS Challenge #1 - Celebration ('never before used schtuff' - the flourish and the sentiment)
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Thanks for your visit today, you've no idea how much it brightens my day to know that you've popped by/commented.
