Muse#164

Hi everyone!!!


A great card by Michele up at the Muse Challenge Blog!!!


 Michele's card inspired me to make this card:


Stamps from PTI.
The one ring is vellum.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.



...and for fun I made another one;



Stamps from PTI.
The strip behind the sentiment is silver glitter cs.




Thanks for visiting and hope to see you again soon!!!!

Love your take on the inspiration card in #1. Using the vellum as one of the graphic pieces was a marvelous idea, as it kept the layers light when you added in the black elements. The green & lavender colors are so fresh, sparked with the deep dark. Like all these graphic images very much. In #2, the spot of spatter colors is a wonderful background for the lovely floral bouquet as well. Again, the rich black on the sentiment strip brings out the brightness of the lavender shades. Beautiful cards, both. TFS

You have been teasing me all week, Petra! WOW are these worth the wait! Gorgeous stamps, beautiful purples, you KNOW I cannot resist a slip of vellum anywhere on a card ... I'm wondering which was made first? Loving the simplicity of card two! thank you so much for playing along with Muse this week!

Oh how I LOVE the simplicity of these Petra dear friend!! So stunning in their simplicity!! The first is a fabulous take on the inspiration card and the second a looser interpretation, but you have still managed to show us what the inspiration was behind it! Genius my friend!! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx

Both are very pretty CAS cards in different ways! The first one looks bold with the graphic elements and the second card is so soft and dreamy with the purple blending!

These are both wonderful. Love your sweet purple flowers on both cards, and the great sponging and splattering on the second.
