Muse 120 - Thank You, Vicki!
This is my card for this week's Muse challenge, where our farewell inspiration from Vicki is this beautiful card:
I focused on the butterfly theme, the white on white card, the script sentiment and its placement on the card as well as the colours. This Penny Black butterfly stamp is one of my favourites from a design point of view - I love how crisp the edges are, even without an outline. However, this butterfly stamp is not my favourite to work with - it's that kind of acrylic that allows the ink to pool on it, making it difficult to get a good impression - MISTI to the rescue! You can restamp in exactly the same spot until all those areas are fully inked. The sentiment is from A Muse.
I added a few strokes of copic markers in yellow, blue and pink to the butterfly before smearing a little Stickles in the centre for some subtle sparkle.
This card is on its way to Vicki, to thank her for being such a wonderful source of inspiration, a reliable DT member and a good friend over the past year and a half. I know you join me in wishing her all the best! And I hope you'll join us before the deadline on Monday morning at 8 am. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites and voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.
