White Card Weekly Challenge

Hi!  I wanted to share one of the cards I made while stamping with Victoria today:


This is for Jennie's weekly challenge on the A Muse Addicts site to make a card that's only one layer and a white base! Very cool challenge and makes for super simple cards!

The flourish on this card is from Baroque Motifs from Stampin' Up! I inked it up with Bamboo Leaves Memento ink and used the DTR technique to add some Cantalaupe and Potter's Clay Memento inks to it as well. I also used black Glaze pen on the crow to give it a glossy, raised look.

I had SOOO much fun with Victoria today!! We got to go to her beautiful house this time and were surrounded by tons of elaborate Halloween decorations. I should get her to post some pics of the fun decor she has. She really knows how to go all out and celebrate the holidays. Her house is full of all kinds of inspiration. We stopped by the new A Muse shop today too, to see how it's coming along!! So cute!! Of course I lost track of time and had to run out the door super fast to pick up my kids from school! I felt so bad leaving V in my dust!! :D I'm gonna be so sad when she goes back to work next week, we won't get play dates as often.

Hugs and blessings to you!

Ohhhh pretty!!!! You know I kept going back and forth on this crow... I bought the expression but thought he was a bit on the large side... after seeing this, I will be getting him! Will you be at the cupcake social?

I love how this turned out. That flourish stamp is so beautiful and it creates such a neat effect when you blended the different inks. Are you going to post the others you made?

I had so much fun yesterday. Don't worry about having to leave the shop. It was fun to look around. I did some damage while I was there! I will try to make it in to see you there tomorrow!
