Muse #5

Hello bloggers!

Time for a bit more Muse inspiration with this lovely card by Marion Vagg:

What a great way to use washi tape...but since I only have 2 rather dull coloured rolls in my collection, I'm not sure they'd create the same effect.  Instead I was inspired by the bright colours, the stripes and the bold, black sentiment. I had a play around with some My Minds Eye lace stamps together with a solid Jenni Bowlin stamp and made a couple of cards.  I asked the bloke of the house which he likes best and he helpfully said 'either.'  So I'll leave it up to you to decide....

Looking forward to seeing how you've been inspired!

Thanks for stopping,

  1. Ooooohhh, that's a hard one! They re both so beautiful. I might have to go for the top one!
    Brilliant designs, I love them!!

  2. Gorgeous! They are both fantastic, love the bold black of the first one. The second one is fun with the star extending beyond the cardstock panel. Both are packed full of inspiration!

  3. Both cards are really terrific. I don't think I can pick a favorite. At first, I really liked the first one because the washi design could be seen through the "shadow" of the girl, but I love how the second one has the star mostly off the white paper. so either way, I think you have a winner!!

  4. They are both precious! I think my FAV is the first just because of the black background, it really helps the color pop! ADORABLE!

  5. Both are lovely cards but I think I like the first one best.

  6. Wow; I love them both! The first one is my favorite -the black background makes the focal image really pop. Amazing work!

  7. Love love love them both! I especially love that silhouette against the lace stripes! Beautiful cards! :)


  8. Really pretty, love that silhouette.

  9. This just stood out in the gallery! Cute!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
