Muse #113 The Blues

Muse
I am happy to be your Muse this week... and I'm singing the Blues!!  That would be the color blue, and in a very bright, and happy way!

Some of you who visit me on Facebook may have seen this card that I created for the Light it Up Blue for Autism day - so fantastic, by the way.  I just love this set of stamps from Neat n Tangled called Scandinavian Flowers and made more than one, most definitely.  I thought this one was sort of worthy of a curtain call...



So simple, and simply water-colored... I stamped the flowers onto a bit of water-color cardstock and used a combo of distress inks, and a Tombow water-base marker. I then fussy cut them before adhering them to the stems... by the way those were stamped twice.   The today sentiment is from Heidi Swapp - pretty new, be unique from INKADINKADOO - very old.

I'd bet each and every one of you has an equally fabulous floral set just calling your name, right now.  I sure hope you all have time to play cards with me this week at Muse... I can't even tell you how much I love it when you do!  =]

I love those flowers too! They have that retro-type vibe too them which I adore. And they look even better in blue, so better get my 'Muse' thinking cap on!
