Muse #199

Winter has hit southern California hard and we are having our third storm pass through within a few days, so I'm taking advantage of the gloomy weather to reorganize the office and play along with a few challenges. Tracey's card for Muse #199 had me stumped until I looked through my stencils. The MFT Sunray caught my attention and I left it on my desk while my brain worked through how I could use it.

Things came together quickly once I lightly inked Spun Sugar Distress Ink on the white card base. A white die cut heart that had been sitting in my extras basket was also inked with the Spun Sugar and then a Mama Elephant sentiment stamped with Delicata Gold ink.

The heart is popped up slightly over the sunrays to finish this card.

Our gloomy day made it hard to capture the lovely shimmer of the gold ink but you can get a glimpse of it in this photo.

As you can see, I was inspired by the heart, Spun Sugar Distress Ink, stenciled lines and touch of gold. 

Thanks for stopping by,
