Have you visited a muse|studio's facebook page yet? If you haven't you should definitely check it out. They have weekly challenges right now during A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA. This week's challenge was to create a card that was inspired by a photo of Paris. I took the greys and greens as well as the trees as the staring point for my inspiration.
All supplies used are from a muse|studio and can be purchased from my webstore. The layout for this card is from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog and is FTL 158. I started out with a Pebble cardbase and added a couple pieces of Holiday Washi Tape to it for the front strip. I don't know if I'll be able to make a card that doesn't have Washi Tape--it's addicting. The focal piece is stamped with images from Spooky Boo Day in Pebble, Wasabi, Slate, and French Roast inks. I inked up the tree in Pebble ink and then added the Wasabi for the leaves with a sponge dauber to get both colors on the image. The owl and sentiment are stamped in French Roast. The bats and grave markers are stamped in slate--the grave markers were stamped off once prior to being stamped on the Sugar Cardstock. I added some red micro twinkle stickers for a bit of bling before I rounded the corners and attached this to a piece of Wasabi cardstock that also has rounded corner. This whole piece is popped up with 3d foam adhesive to the card base.
There you have it! I love Spooky Boo Day and will be playing with it a lot more from now till Halloween. Thanks for visiting.
