Muse 60

I have a last minute entry to Muse #60.  Lyndal Higgins, our Muse this week is a genius putting these shades together.  I am just wowed by her card.

I so fell in love with the inked colors and knew immediately that I wanted a white glittered piece in front of a similarly inked background piece.  I finally found some time to sit down and get the card made.  I used distress inks in crushed olive, squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, faded jeans, salty ocean, and black soot.

I cut a Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies and ran it through my xyron upside down.  Then added clear rock candy distress glitter. I burnished the glitter so it would stay put, then placed the die on my inked background.  A gold embossed sentiment on vellum finished off my card. Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. LOVE your blended inks Cat, the colour really pops against your white die-cut! So glad you were inspired to play along with MUSE!

  2. So petty! Love the depth of the colours and that pop of white! Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! I love this card - your background is so yummy and the pretty white die cut is perfect, Cat. SO pretty!

  4. This is really pretty! Your background is amazing and you used one of my all time favorite dies!

  5. I clicked on your photo so I could appreciate all the beautiful sparkle on your pretty, Cat! I love how you inked/blended your background, too! Awesome take on the Muse card!

  6. Those colours are a-mazing! What a beautiful card, Jo x

  7. Both cards are just lovely and the die looks fab on your card! I love that bright blue what a great way to make your card stand out
