Spring Birthday



I'm joining in the fun at a new challenge, Muse (which closes in a few hours!)

Here are the simple rules:
  • Use what you have in your stash, don't purchase anything new for your Muse cards.
  • Explain your interpretation of the Muse inspiration card in your post and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for one of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.


And here's the inspiration card, provided this week by Amy Kolling.


I took my inspiration from the yellow flower and the black sentiment.

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use markers.

CFC87: Use markers in your Clean And Simple Creation
Remember... a little can go a loooong way!
You can color an image, or an element, or get creative and show us some fun techniques!

I used Tombow markers to colour the flower stamp then added doodling around the images, so that I could enter it into One Layer Wednesday, hosted this week by Karen from Snippets, to use doodling in your one layer card.

Doodled Up- add doodling to your card!


You can see from these two close-ups where I've started doodling, and the finished panel.


It's a sketch challenge at Less is More this week, with conditions:

It's simplicity itself, so to add a little constraint, we ask that the card stays in this orientation ie that the band remains in the horizontal plane, in the lower part of the card and that it takes up no more than 1/3rd of the height of the cardbase.

I stamped the sentiment then added some doodled lines to define the panel.  Oh, and a bit of Stickles for the flower centres.

Flower: Hero Arts 657776
Sentiment: Hero Arts CL646
