I seem to have lost a week last week, but I checked out the Muse blog earlier this week and thought about SonjaK's lovely card for Muse challenge 209.
I've had very little success with using craft card, but am often impressed by how others use it so well in their creations. My craft card 'creations' always look like brown cardboard - I have yet to master the art of using it to create an earthy, rustic feel.
However I love blue flowers. I also love the combination of blue and orange that Sonja has included on her card, and how her hydrangea is framed by the oval even though it's outside the frame.
My daughter gave me some Faber-Castell paper crafter crayons for my birthday last year, not something I would have thought to buy for myself, but I love them. I have been playing around with using them as a resist with distress inks. and this is what I've done with my card. I used a Jofy stamp and coloured it with oranges, yellows and greens.
Instead of using the blending tool I just splodged some tumbled glass, picket fence & shaded lilac on my craft sheet, flicked on some water & smeared them round with my finger & then pressed my crayoned flower picture into it.
