Muse #63 - Thank You!


I don't normally make two cards for each Muse Challenge (I wouldn't want the DT members to think I've got a favourite! lol!) but this week I received a card in the mail from the lovely Anita, thanking me for sending her a birthday card last month (as you'll recall, we were all a month late celebrating her birthday).


I love the simple design, and you just know that I love the rainbow colours, but I saw another opportunity to use Therese's Muse as an inspiration as well, using a similar idea as my previous card.


I used an A Muse Studio sentiment (love how it follows the curve of the circle!) and a sketchy circle from Papertrey. I alternated the direction of the sketch lines so that they would criss-cross where the circles overlap. After I stamped the circle in the 5 colours, I went back and restamped them in Versamark and then embossed with iridescent embossing powder.

Don't forget the deadline for Muse is Monday morning at 8 am. You can vote from Monday at 8 to Tuesday at 8. Hope to see you there!

You are so clever, Ardyth! I love how you criss-crossed the lines on the circles to create a new pattern and the iridescent embossing powder really makes them pop! Your sentiment is perfect, too! Another fabulous card!

I love how you alternated the orientation of the circles.

Bobby said...

Both cards are wonderful. Alternating the direction of the circle to make the crosshatch looks great.

Cool, graphic awesomeness! Love how you added the sparkle!

Geri said...

Alternating the patterns/circle stamps to create a bit of a grid design was brilliant! Isn't it amazing how a small detail like this can impact a design! Love the colors and LOVE the sentiment font!

BTW...another missed post...grrrrr!

Always love a CAS style card and this one is terrific. How creative to alternate the pattern in the circle stamp to create the grid design!! Would you please tell me who makes this stamp?
