Guest Designer at the Muse!

I could not believe it when Ardyth emailed me and offered me to be guest designer for this weeks Muse challenge! Of course I said yes - I am still excited about it! So I thought hard about what to do and came up with this card:




I wanted something totally different and also open for interpretation. It actually was really easy to make. I have some cheap bottles of acrylic paint at home. I used yellow, orange, green and neon pink and made some strips across the card. Then I took my trusty cake decorating tool (you can see it HERE), flattened the paint and went up and down in a zig zag motion. 
I used watercolor paper - regular paper warped too much. Once the paint was dry I stamped the sentiment over it - STAMPlorations sentiment builder Happy

Added some black splatters.



I hope you like it and I inspired you to play along!

I am also adding this card to the Bizzy Becs challenge - Anything goes

Flo said...

GRATULIERE!!!!! Noch dazu hast du eine wunderbare Karte für diese Geschichte gemacht!!!
Mein Kleid ist im Müll gelandet und ich bin losgezogen, um eines zu kaufen. Na ja, es ist ein Kompromiss, ich weiß auch noch nicht, ob ich nicht ein weiteres in Augenschein nehmen soll, sprich erwerben werde. Das, was mir dann am besten gefällt ziehe ich zur Hochzeit dann an. Zum Glück ist noch etwas Zeit.
