Muse Challenge

Apart from a card for the latest Naughty or Nice challenge (Are you playing? You should!) I haven't been making anything for several days now — partly that's what happens when I actually clean up and put everything away, I'm not overly inclined to get stuff back out again. :D However, lest I forget how to stamp, I decided it was time to start again, and the latest Muse challenge seemed a good way to begin. Here's the Muse card, by Michele



I was inspired by Michele's card layout, her design of black and white with just a pop of colour, and her mushy theme. ;) I wandered off a bit, but here's what I ended up with: 


Shockingly, I went with blue instead of red for my pop of colour. In addition to a shiny blue foil heart, my cat's collar/ribbon is also blue. My black and white patterned paper isn't a true black, and my cat and sentiment are on watercolour paper, which isn't really white, so I ended up with a grey card base. Since it matches the cat, that's fine with me. And obviously, instead of putting my image and sentiment on one large oval panel, I chose a smaller circle and a sentiment flag. 
Now that I've made one card, I may feel like making more! Thanks for stopping by, and check back tomorrow, just in case... 
Supplies: American Crafts textured grey cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, KaiserCraft Black and White Timeless patterned paper, My Favourite Things I Knead You stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Zing clear embossing powder, My Favourite Things Blueprints 24 stitched circle die, distress markers, blue heart die cut from stash, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

OH I do love this little kitten ... and I'm not kitten!!! He's on my list! Beyond the darling p.p. and your excellent coloring, it is that little blue heart that captured mine.... thanks so much for playing cards with me this week, Lindsey - I do hope you're inclined to play again soon!

I love your interpretation of Michele's MUSE card with a few twists. So cute.

I always love polka dots and they look really cute on your card. Of course I approve wholeheartedly in the choice of a blue accent!
