Here's Hoping...

I have good intentions. My intent for this post is to schedule it for Friday morning, (I'm pretty sure that's no problem) and before I have to leave in the wee hours of the morning, to link up to Muse. Not sure if I'll have time, or more probably, if I'll be awake enough to get that done. I guess we'll see what happens...

Cornelia has some wildness and funkiness happening on her card; how fun is this???!! 



As soon as I saw the inspiration photo, I knew what I wanted to do. It only took three tries, from me smearing the sentiment...But I finally got it to where I wanted it.


This went together quickly (once I stopped smearing the darn thing). I'm still a bit timid with watercolors, and I knew I had this CASual Fridays set, so that's what I used. A variety of inks, Studio G, Colorbox, and Versa color. Used my very NBUS sentiment stamp from AE. Oh am loving these!!! A bunch of Michaels sequins and one SC star sequin. That's all... Happy dances everyone.

I admit that I bought that whole set just for that paintstroke stamp! Love how it looks here - this is a fantastic interpretation of the Muse! So glad you joined us!

I love the stamped swooshes! Personally I have much more fun stamping a swoosh than fussing with watercolors!

Hi Bev, I laughed when I read your description of my card - you are right on with it! And it sure looks like you had the same experience with your card - you perfectly captured it! Thanks for playing along!

Radically retro! I'm sure I had a wall poster just like this! Youngsters would likely look at me like I'm nuts....what's a wall poster???

I ADORE the single star bling - so unexpected and so effective!
