The. Very. Last. One.

Well, it's the last week of Case Study Challenge as me as the muse. and this last one was tough for me. When I made this first card, it seemed so organic. I just layered one Penny Black stamp after another and in about 20 minutes, it was finished. But the muse card...that stinky muse card, took hours. I still don't think it's exactly right, but I present it to you nonetheless.

first the muse card. What does this mean? It means you take the this first card and use it as a jump off point to create your own masterpiece!





I used the arrows, the large gold centerpiece and stitching as inspiration. Instead of sequins, I used splatter and I stuck to the same color scheme. 


I am still playing with lighting and such so bare with me. I can't predict the light in Ohio! And speaking of playing, why not play along with case study this final week??

  1. Regardless of whether it takes you minutes to make a card, or you're overthinking it, to us it's one piece of loveliness after another. I personally can't get enough. You're a Muse, not only for May but always :)

  3. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and trying to visit as many blogging friends as possible. I saw this card come up on my feeder and had to come by to comment on it.

    I'm still playing around with lighting too. We have a lot of overcast days where I live, so I've opted to use a lightbox. The lighting looks great on this card. What a gentle and very sweet card it is too. Love it!!!

  6. As a Midwest girl, a light box is pretty much the way to go. Low pressure centers bringing clouds like to hover around us! Your card is beautiful. Delicate, soft, and really lovely with just a touch of flowers. Sweet. Bev

  7. I think you really nailed it. I wish I could do these muse things without making them look tortured.
