Today I am very honored and wish to thank the Muse: Christmas Vision challenge team for inviting me to be their Guest Muse this week (#73). I'm feeling quite excited, but what to make for my inspiration....as I don't really have a style - I love them all and I especially love being inspired by others, so hope my card today has you looking at your stamps in a different way.
I'm not sure how crazy you are with card making but if you are anything like me, you don't throw anything out, hence I have a great stash of stamped images, off cuts, die cuts and oh yes lots of backgrounds. So for this challenge I decided not to create new but to use some of my stash. One card making artist that I do love is Sarita at 'Little Princess Cards, so my idea today is to only use 'Flourish' stamps on my cards....I seem to have lots of them as part of stamp sets but they get overlooked as not an image or sentiment.
I'm loving how this card turned out.... the background is made with Brushos and the sentiment strip are both from my stash. I simply stamped on a couple of flourishes and added some sequins and a thin metallic layer to top and bottom.
This card is even more 'clean and simple' - again from my stash a sentiment strip (usually while a stamp is inked I create a couple more for the stash) and I simply stamped on my flourishes (please note below - I didn't ink the whole stamp). Then attached another strip of matching coloured card to display my sentiment
