Muse Marion


muse_logo


This week we have the oh-so-talented, Marion back with a lovely inspiration card - see for yourself:

 
Marion has a way with blue that I've never seen anywhere else in Blog-land.
 
While I'd love to think that I could recreate that sky, the truth of it is I really stink at blending... even with the proper tools, paper, inks I probably wouldn't do well.  But we can't all be great at all things... I'll leave Marion, Vicki and Ardyth to add their blending magic to your world.
 
So here is my card for Muse #105 and Marion:
 

 
This wonderful Hero Arts' sentiment is part of a wonderful surprise
from Chriss recently... thank you, darling friend!
 
Second helpings?
- a little Ardyth-esque number!
 
The Sparkle stamp set is a darling little freebie with purchase
 from Winnie & Walter!!   
 
Hmmm... who does this remind you of? 
You get one guess!
 
I can't wait to see what each of you creates!

You, my dear, seem to have a wonderful way with the blues all over this post! You have put that sentiment to such wonderful use! Mine did not ever look THAT good :). Love those fluffy clouds, just positioned so...they look like they are in motion!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

I love that I have my own adjective! lol! These are both wonderful interpretations of Marion's Muse! That sparkler stamp is amazing!

Hi Michele! I love your cloud card! So so cute and you did a fabulous job with the sentiment. Super sharp and bold. I wanted you to know that I made a card inspired by your great Muse #104 card, but missed the deadline! I'd like to invite you to check it out. I blogged about it here. https://honeybeelane.wordpress.com/2015/02/18/yo/ Hope it's o.k. to share the link here?

Pinned the cloud card, Michele, but I need that sentiment. Stamp, die, part of a set? Love the fairy wand to, It and you really do sparkle.

I'm at a loss for 'fresh and original' comments to express how deeply impressive your creativity is, so forgive me for defaulting to what may sound cliched, but isn't: these are stunning! You've captured the 'essence' of both Marion's card and Ardyth's style 'eloquently', with a heaping helping of YOUR flair and panache added! More to adore...

Such cool cards - especially that one with the dot embossed cloud - swoon!

Anita in France said...

Ahhh, beautiful blue hues, Michele ... those texture-y clouds really look as those they're drifting gently across a deep summer sky ... and that sparkler is luscious! Loving that cardstock ... tee-hee!! Anita :)

Brenda said...

Wow, wow, wow! Loving both of these beautiful cards, but you had me with those clouds!! lol I love the blue and the white just pops off it! Love, love, love! The sparkle card is amazing as well, but the cloud card has won my heart! Hugs Brenda

Love them both, but your clouds are to "die" for! Beautifully done! I love the way you designed both cards, and the sparkler on the second looks fantastic in the silver embossing powder!
