Muse #109 – It’s Your Birthday

Posted by on March 16, 2015 in Animals, Clean and Simple, Copic markers, Cuttlebug, Distress inks, Happy Birthday Cards, Lawn Fawn, Muse, Penny Black, Stamping | 6 comments


I was determined NOT to make a blue card for the Muse Card Club this month. Looking through my last Muse cards, blue seems to be something I gravitate too! So how about a dose of yellow for this month?

It[s Your Birthday | Marion Vagg

These sweet birds (coloured with Copics) are from the Penny Black ‘Woodland Friends’ Stamp set and the sentiment is also from a Penny Black set called ‘Live it Up!’. I created the background by creating a wash with Distress inks, and once dry, flicked on some splatters with a paintbrush.

Hope that you will be able to find some time this week to join in on the fun.
