Muse 83 - Merci Beaucoup!


Here's my take on this week's Muse, where DT member Vicki Dutcher gave us this card as our inspiration:


I focused on the colours (pink black white) and the vellum. I got all excited about the watercolouring and decided I would try my hand at it. I inked up the Papertrey Dot Spot stamp with Pixie Pink, rock'n'rolled it in Pink Passion and then spritzed it with water before stamping it. I thought it would be all smooshy and artsy, but now I think it just looks like it was badly stamped! lol!

Oh well, I stamped my Impression Obsession sentiment in black over top and not quite straight so that my square panel would be skewed a bit when the sentiment was placed straight on the card. I added a layer of vellum and some sequins.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us - the deadline is on Monday morning at 8 am EDT. At that point, you can vote until Tuesday morning at 8 and then the voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon. Remember, you're the ones who choose the winners for this challenge - even if you didn't link up, you can vote!

I just adore the inspired cards you make. You can always tell you were inspired, but the concept is always different! Such talent :)

Love this with the vellum bg mat Ardyth.

Never thought to make the vellum into a mat, Ardyth! Absolutely breath-taking! Love the concept you used from your inspiration, also.

You cracked me up Ardyth! Your stamping does not look like it was badly stamped. I love it!! The vellum mat is genius, I love that stamp and love how you have it looking like you used two different colors of ink. The bold black sentiment is just perfect. Hugs, Brenda

I love the vellum panel - adds a cool element and it's easy to attach with the top panel! Clever!

Only you would think it's badly stamped. I think it looks great and tilting the panel is so daring of you.

One of my favourite PTI sets ... and such a brilliant technique, Ardyth! Love the gradation in colour ... it does look softly watercoloured ... delicious! Anita :)

I love Dot Spot, and what a fun and artsy way to use it. It looks great with a sentiment stamped right on top.
