Bloomin' Marvelous Muse

Some Spring flowers for you today.


Inspired by this week's Muse 
muse

 Ardyth Percy-Robb.   Ardyth is an inspiration to so many not only with her talent in creating cards, but in her commenting and encouraging of others.

This is the card she made for our inspiration.


by Ardyth Percy-Robb

When I looked at this card, I was inspired by the Spring colors surrounding the sentiment and the black mat to enhance the lovely colors.


I masked an area for the sentiment and stamped the flowers and leaves.  My scale wasn't quite right so I ended up cascading my flowers down one side.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pretty In Pink, Wisteria Wonder, Certainly Celery, Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Basic Black, Peach Parfait)
