Case this muse.

Hi there!

I just love it when I'm stuck on an idea for a design, and a challenge pops up to get everything sorted.

I was thinking of an interesting way to case Cornelia's funky card at the Muse card club, when Case this sketch  published their sketch yesterday. Thanks Julie!

And I had a PING  like my friend Bev calls it. That moment when a design comes together !





I wanted to use paint (like Cornelia did). Found this pearly poster paint in a drawer, and the rest is history! I added texture by dabbing the panels with the paintbrush just before the paint was completely dry.
I didn't plan to use vellum for my sentiment, but the space left on the right side panel was too small, and it would mean an out of balance small sentiment if I wanted to squeeze it in there! The bonus of vellum is that it doesn't cover up whatever it is you want to show!

Another sentiment for you to use!



I will also enter the Simon says stamp anything goes challenge.

Joe, vrou, daai ontwerp LEWE absoluut!! Die keuse van kleure is perfek en daai lekker tekstuur is 'n bonus - lekker as als so goed uitwerk, ne!! En ja, is vellum nie net te heerlik om mee te werk omdat jy dit so bo-oor iets kan gebruik nie! Die sentiment is lieflik gedoen en die drie pereltjies net reg!!!
Verdien niks minder as volpunte nie!!

Groete en 'n lieflike naweek, hoor!!

Texture is so lovely in this card, as are the colours! It took me down memory lane and reminded me of those little sundresses that used to use that zig zaggy bias binding in the bodice and along the hemline. I just love it!
