Muse Challenge #273

Eventhough I'm leaving town for a few days, I was so inspired by Anita's card at Muse that I just had to create something before packing (just hope I'm not up too late packing!). Here is Anita's card

I was inspired by:

  • one layer card
  • use of shaded lilac, salty ocean, cracked pistachio
  • masking
  • foliage silhouette
  • "just because" sentiment
Here's my card

For my one layer card, I matted off a 1.75" area with post-it tape on the front of the card. I added some distress inks with an ink blending tool (shaded lilac, salty ocean, cracked pistachio). I spritzed the ink with some water and blotted up the extra water with a paper towel. I used my heat tool to ensure everything was dry (and I'm impatient). I carefully removed the post-it tape. I stamped the sprig silhouette, using Catherine Pooler's Wild Garden stamp set. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP's Handwritten Sentiments. I added some three dot embellishments using a fine black marker.

Thanks for stopping by (I've gotta get packing!)


  1. Lovely card Sue, pretty colours

  2. Very pretty! I love that hand-written font! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse this week, Sue!

  3. I'm so sorry for interfering with your packing, but so pleased I inspired you! The sprig image and the font of your sentiment work great together. Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x
