Vicki Dutcher - Muse No. 88

I am usually not so early with my Muse submission.  I like to take a look on a daily basis to get a feel for the inspiration; think about what supplies I have that would work for it.  Yesterday?  BAM!!  Vicki Dutcher's inspiration card just grabbed me, and away I went!!

Here is Vicki's inspiration... see if it gives you a burst of creative energy,too:

 
I didn't have a quality black cardstock, so I reached for Smoky Shadow from PTI and Ranger Fine Detail embossing powder, and another dose of one of my favorite Technique Tuesday sentiments.
 
For Muse 88, and Vicky:
 
 
I love this look so much, I made a second helping:
 
This time Fuse Green CS from MFT - which totally reads gold to my eyes, Ranger Pewter embossing powder, Clearly Besotted sentiment,
and that brilliant Agapanthus cling stamp from Stampendous.
 
Oh! that vellum?  Inked on the back with ink pad - dries slowly, but I love the look and the ability to make any color I want!  Some inks work better than others, so you'll have to do a little experiment on your own... don't make the mistake I did... let it dry, overnight, so the ink doesn't transfer to your card!!

From a girl whose name is always misspelled, and try diligently to be so careful about it, I do apologize Vicki.
