I love your style, your creations, your vibe, but... why did I struggle so with this week's challenge? I tried... and tried... and tried! Alas. I've not felt one was up to the challenge... please feel free to critique my work.
Look at Marion's gorgeous card for Muse Challenge #94:
The stamping, the color choices, the contrast, the enamel dots perfectly placed - the color choices!!! That is exactly what I most struggled with. I really don't have more than a hand-full of inks!
Here are my cards. The last is my entry:
Love the stars until, that dreaded yellow one!!!
Love the holly, but too few colors.
Still only four inks use for the holly leaves, but love the CASness of this one the most - and must give our CAS leader, Ardyth, full credit for inspiration, and PTI for that gorgeous Holly stamp.
With respect, I will keep trying!!
These are all great! You did a fantastic job.
Keep trying? I think you did a beautiful job on all of these! The stars are my favorite.
Oh my...I love it! 3 gorgeous and creative cards.
Oh Michele...I totally feel your pain. I created four cards before I gave up and submitted the last one. BUT, I don't know why you're not happy with your cards...they are ALL gorgeous! I do love the last one the most, but I love them all, honestly!
You are totally mistaken Michele, I think your cards are so worthy,they are just different to Marion's (and I agree, she can really nail a design)! I really like the monochromatic green thanks, such great stamping!
You have done great with this challenge. I have been thinking about this one since it was posted and haven't come up with anything and YOU, my friend, have created three great cards here. WOW!!!!
Well....you saved the BEST for last. I would love to CAS this card...could you provide an explanation on how you created it. Thank you
Thanks Connie! Papertrey Ink Layered Postmarks, Holiday set:
stamped four times from dark to light. MFT Thanks die from free-with-purchase set.
Hope this helps... and thanks again for stopping by!
Wow Michele, I think the original card is awesome but I also think all three of yours are awesome too! I love the colors you chose, yes even the yellow! I love the simplicity of the other two cards as well and the colors are great with them too. I think you did great with this challenge! Hugs, Brenda
Give yourself due credit for these fabulous cards, Michele ... they're all so striking and capture Marions's Muse brilliantly! You did three ... my brain couldn't even conjure one up! Anita :)
3 fantastic takes on the Muse - I especially love the holly! So glad you joined us at Muse this week, Michele - Happy Thanksgiving!
That final Thanks card is truly outstanding!
You are way too hard on yourself. I think your cards are fabulous.
I admit the JOY one is my fav - totally gorgeous.
Fabulous cards - the last one is absolutely stunning!
I think they are all worthy Michele! You went from awesome to stunning. You need to come back and show me how you did the last one. ;) xoxo
Well done getting to a card you were happy with!! I struggled a bit too and I'm a little disappointed that my 'joy' doesn't stand out too much with the colours but will definitely try this again. I actually like all of your cards but the layout and colours of the last card makes it my favourite.
I love all three cards you made, each one is a masterpiece.....I couldn't even begin to come up with anything like these. I love Marion's card as well! Beautiful work miss Michele!
Cut yourself some slack, girl, you nailed it on all three! My fav is the holly/ivy...love it!
