AP Spot Challenge

There's a new challenge on the A Muse blog this week for A-Muse-A-Palooza. The challenge is to make a card inspired by the word "spot."

I thought of all sorts of ideas but landed on the Spot the dog children's book series, using Patch. Here's what I made:

Spot's First Walk

Spot's Birthday Party

Spot at the Farm

And one more card just for fun, inspired by inkspots:

I used Adirondack Alcohol inks, dripped and splattered them randomly. Also colored in the main image using the same inks from the bottles and a blender pen. This turned out totally 80's to me! I remember having a sweatshirt with ink splatters all over it! Heehee! (And, yes, I wore a high-up side pony tail with a scrunchie and big bangs!!) :D

All Stamps, Papers and Twinkle stickers used on these cards are by A Muse Artstamps (except for black and white basic CS).

I'm gonna be taking a break from blogging this month since I'll be on vacation but look forward to hopping back on in August! Hope you're all enjoying your Summer!!

Happy A-Muse-A-Palooza to you!!

One More Twilight Card


Here's another "Twilight" inspired card for the 3rd A-Muse-A-Palooza challenge on the A Muse blog this week:

I've been wanting to do a "you're cool" card with Edward for awhile and finally got some time to do it. Pretty silly, but it was fun to make. I think Eddie looks a bit like Liberace in that glittered up cape! LOL! Of course, I had to add in some woods in the bg to be authentic! :D All stamps and papers used on this card are by A Muse Artstamps, Memento Inks, Copic Markers, Marvy Circle Punch, EK Success trees border punch, Black Diamond Stickles, silk ribbon, dimensional tape, and sponge daubers also used.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Blessings to you!
