MUSE Challenge #107


This week's Guest Muse is none other than the mega talented Vicki, who has crafted up a stunning creation featuring warm, subtle earthy colors, glammed up with a bit of bling. 
Feast your eyes on this beauty:


It took me about 2 seconds to decide on a simple black & white color combo for this clean and graphic design.

I stamped the 'swirly' triangle image (origin unknown) repeatedly with Versafine black ink, edged the stamped panel with a thin strip of black cardstock, popped on some white side panels and inked up this fabulous bold SU sentiment. 

I made it sound easy, didn't I? 

Truth is...it took several tries before I got the entire panel stamped to my satisfaction. Ya think that I was holding my breath on the last few images? Oh Yeah! 

In fact, I think I'm still feeling lightheaded!

So please take a minute or ten and pop on over to Muse and see how others have been inspired by Vicki's amazing card! Perhaps you'll be inspired to play along too :)

Happy crafting!

  15. Wait a second here...first you lined up - perfectly - those charming triangles,added thin black edges - perfectly straight and THEN added two additional pieces of white card-stock -perfectly aligned? No wonder it took you a few tries, but the results are staggeringly impressive! Gorgeous and classy! WOW!
