I'm watching the Olympics again today, and playing along with the Muse challenge while I'm at it. I loved the card by Therese Calvird, so I couldn't resist diving in.
I pulled out the sanding block, and some textured pool party Core'dinations card stock, and sanded it down for a bit of a shabby, aged look that really reminds me a favourite, old pair of blue jeans. I'm totally using this background again soon! I hope you can see the texture in this photo.
I stamped this Stampendous Daisy Cluster image on a piece of rustic ivory card stock in sepia Versafine ink, then painted it with a variety of blue, green and yellow inks and an aqua painter. Man, I loooove this stamp. No idea why I've only used it once before? So fun to use it again in a different way by stamping only part of the image on a too small strip. I also stamped the top 2 flowers directly onto the pool party base and colored them in, then trimmed the ivory panel down a bit, and added a sentiment in sepia.
Thanks for stopping by,
