MUSE #82



Hi there.  I have a quick post today to share a card I made for this week's MUSE #82 challenge.  The inspiration this week is provided by Bobby from Bits and Pieces, and you can click over to her blog to see all the details about how she made her gorgeous card.  



I was inspired by the swirls and the color gradations I saw in those swirls.  Bobby tried to encourage us not to be afraid of our embossing paste, but I have to admit that I am still too afraid to open my jar up.  I immediately thought of PTI Fancy Flourishes when I saw Bobby's card, so that is what I went with.



I stamped lots of flourishes on my card using Versamark ink, and then heat embossed in clear.  I randomly sponged a couple of different blue and green Distress inks over it all--inspired by Bobby's color gradations in her swirls.  I also went with a sentiment on a popped up circle.


That's it for now.  I spent some time this week with Kim and Marybeth, and will come back later or tomorrow with a post showing everything we made together and hopefully a picture of the three of us.


Thanks for Visiting
