Thinking of you at Muse #13

Posted by on April 15, 2013 in Distress inks, Flowers, Hero Arts | 7 comments

I am back again today sharing another card at the Muse Card Club. Can you believe we are up to Muse #13 already? Hope that you will find some time to play along this week.


This week, I have made a card by colouring directly onto the stamp using Distress Markers. The Hero Arts Little Stencil Flower stamp actually has a stem, but I was able to leave it off using this method. Before stamping I huffed on the stamp. I then went back over it and added in some details with the same colour distress marker.

Thinking of you

The middle flower is popped up on some foam to add some dimension.

Thinking of you - detail

  4. I just love your cards. Clean and simpel, just what I like

    Have a nice day

  5. Very, very pretty. I have a number of the distress pads but no markers -I guess I did not realize there were also markers………… I guess I better get some cuz I reeeeeaallllly like what you did on your flowers.
    This is the first time I have gotten on your site -I like what I see. Thanks for sharing your talent with me.
