Muse #70

Evening all.
Sorry I haven't been around much but I have been away with my grandson and his Mum and Dad. We had a good week really over in North Norfolk, just a couple of very wet mornings. May need a week to recover though!
While I was away I noticed the card that Vicki Dutcher has made for the latest challenge over at Muse. She used washi tape to blank off the card to make striped background then inked over.

I thought about it on the long journey home and came up with this. My washi tape must have been a bit stickier than hers because it tore my first two attempts when I took the tape off!

Here is my take on the Muse -


I used Peacock Feathers DI but the picture has come out bluer than the original. I bought the sentiment from Kaisercraft a while ago and this is it's first outing. Stamped in blue and clear embossed, the third line was masked off and stamped again in black on plain white card.  I cut it down and then mounted it on pads over the original.

OK, just  quick post after a very busy day!

  1. So pretty! I love how sponged stripes look (I usually put my tape on my trousers first to get some of the 'sticky' off!) Definitely worth the extra effort. So glad you joined us at Muse this week!
