Monday afternoon.


I looked at the inspiration card at Muse Challenges and this Indigo Blu stamp came to my mind. I embossed it with copper EP but it doesn't look too coppery in this picture. I'm having to take pics with my phone as my camera is playing silly kids. 
I over stamped with SU French Foliage splats and embossed in black adding a few home made squuins and some tiny pearls. The sentiment is from Rubber Necker stamps. I did try to add a little washi tape but couldn't find anywhere that improved the look of the card, so I left well alone! 
Here is the inspiration card.
This next one uses a few stamps from SU's  Painted Petals set and a sentiment from Hero Arts.
I used the colours from Colours and Sketches
and based my layout on the sketch at Retro Sketches

I inked the flower head  stamp with yellow ink and then rolled a red ink pad across the tips of the petals. I just love these stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp.

  1. Superb use of those dies, such a multi layered look but actually without all the layers! Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  6. What a great take on the Muse card - love the copper on kraft! So clever how you've done the Retro sketch too - I'd never have thought of using 2 squares to make up the rectangular centre.
