Muse # 12

MUSE  blog:  "You're free to draw your inspiration from any of the elements of this week's Muse card. For example, design/layout, color combination, pattern, texture, image, style, embellishment and technique. Be creative and make a card that reflects your own personal style and flair."  This is the inspiration card by Therese Calvird.  I really liked the flowing greenery, so thought my stem should follow suite...and I loved her colors, but didn't have anything real close, so I did a little rock and roll method to at least get some highlights on the flower.  I forgot to add the link to the Muse blog, go HERE to access it and look at the other participants cards...then YOU vote for your favorite three...that is how a winner is selected!

All products are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted
paper:  rustic cream
stamps:  Birds and Blooms, Daydreamer
ink:  raspberry fizz,, SU orchid opulence, simply chartreuse

  2. So so pretty, would you believe I don't think I've ever tried the rock and roll stamp method, it's definitely on my list of 'techniques to try' and now it's moved up after seeing this. Thanks for the inspiration.
