Go After Your Dreams


When I saw Vicki's Muse card, I had to play along!  Vicki's used one of the images from my Bee's Knees Small Birds stamp set in her card, so I thought I'd use one of the other images.

Vicki's Muse card
You can really colour outside the lines with these images, it all adds to the looseness of the design.  I stamped the puffin image onto a white card panel in Versafine Onyx Black, and coloured it with Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey and Black Soot Distress Inks.  I stamped a sentiment from the new Noteworthy set in black and orange. On the base card and the panel, I used the same colours and stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set which is the April set for the STAMP club.

So.  If you flip Vicki's card you can pretty much see the similarities.

I'm also entering this into Virginia's View - Layers.  The top panel is a separate layer, and then there's washi tape as a layer.
