Muse #118 – Canine trio

muse_logo

Hello! This week I have a canine card up on the Muse Card Club blog.

I’m not a dog person at all, but I recently had a request for some dog themed cards and this is one of the cards that I came up with. The die cuts are in-laid into the focal panel – I love this technique. Even though I am a cat person, I am quite partial to that cute little dachshund right in the middle. My grandparents used to own a dachshund when I was growing up and his name was Fritz. I have fond memories of walking Fritz around the block with his short stubby legs going flat out and his ears flapping in the breeze!

So are you a dog or a cat person, or neither perhaps?

I hope that you can find some time to play along this week. It may not be the dogs that inspire you, but maybe the layout or the colour scheme or the technique. Whatever inspires you I can’t wait to see you link it up over at the Muse Blog.

Just a Note – Jane’s Doodles

I recently had this card up on the Jane’s Doodles blog. It was a really simple card to make. I white heat embossed some flowers from the Doodles Flowers and Doodle Flowers ii stamps sets onto some water colour paper before going to town with some water colour paints. I’ve been having some fun with water colouring lately – it is such a forgiving medium to work with.

Thank you – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m dropping in quickly with a couple of cards that went up on the Jane’s Doodles blog this week. CAS and very simple to make. The flowers and leaves are from the Smile stamp set. The sentiment is from an old Jane’s Doodle set, which I believe has been discontinued.
