Muse: Christmas Visions Debut


Hooray! It's my turn to be THE MUSE at Muse: ChristmasVisions! Oh, the pressure. :D Here for your potential creative inspiration is my card: 


Once again, I'm using plastic wrap to create my background — I still love this technique and the effect it gives! (There are several variations on using plastic wrap; this is the one I like to use.) Blue and mauve distress inks give me a wintry sky. The light colours seemed to suit white better than black for the house in the woods silhouette. A bit of yellow vellum lights the window. 
I'm going to add my little scene to three other challenges: Happy Little Stampers February Christmas challenge (but no hearts), Jingle Belles' A Colouring We Will Go and Shopping Our Stash Home Sweet Home.  
I would be thrilled if you joined in and were inspired by my first muse card for ChristmasVisions! You have until 8 am EST Monday, March 5th to play along. 





Supplies: white cardstock, yellow vellum & Canson watercolour paper, Stampin' Up Winter Memories stamp, Stampin' Up lulu lavender, tumbled glass, broken china & shaded lilac distress inks, MFT blueprints 24 stitched rectangular & CUTplorations stitched winter landscape dies

Pin It Now!

Love the 'smoky' look of your background from your cling wrap technique. These colours are right up my alley, so I'm hoping to play along at MCV this fortnight. Great job on your first appearance as our MCV Muse. Thanks also for playing along again with my prompt at Jingle Belles. ;-)

Absolutely beautiful! I admire your cling wrap results, and will go watch the video of how you've done it. I didn't not have such success the first time I tried (last month, I think)...
