Muse Chanllenge #5

Hello there again Muse Challenge! LOL! I am totally loving participating in this challenge. But I have to admit I think my favorite part is the voting! LOL! It’s so much fun. 😉 Here is this weeks Muse…

IMG_9928-001I LOVE the negative die cuts. If you’ve visited this or my older blog you know I have a thing for them, 🙂 I love the bright pattern and then the solid sentiment and I wanted to invert them…

DSCN2266So I used a solid black background and used the bright pattern to fill in my negatives. This was a super simple card, but I LOVE how it turned out!

Hope you like it!

    I love it! So cool to swap these around. I am a bit stumped this week but hoping to get my MOJO so I can enter before Sat!

  7. I love this! Especially the asymmetrical balance you have created between the negative and positive space. Very clever and very appealing.

    Hi Lauren: thank you SO MUCH for your comment on my Grammy-Super Baba card! I take your compliment very much to heart! When someone as talented as you are sees something ‘pretty’ in my attempts – wow! You’ve amped up my cofidence and, in turn, my motivation to carry on, learning and growing through the vast array of challenges in this encouraging, supportive, nurturing crafting community.

    Your MUSE card is absolutely stunning in its “simplicity”! I can see why you love it! Eye-catching, unique and clever! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your cards in the challenges you have listed on your site. We appear to have similar ‘tastes’, which means I’ll be fortunate to see more of your creative genius in various locations. As a new-comer to card-making, I’m excited about all the ‘learning and growing’ potential these ‘events’ offer.

    Have a wonderful Sunday evening – and again, your comments has been a day-brightener and smile-maker!!
