Muse Challenge #173

I haven't played along with the Muse challenge in awhile....I always forget to go back and vote LOL but I thought I'd play along this week....Anita's card is just gorgeous!
I took inspiration from the inky background and the silhouette image on Anita's card.... I used Tim Holts distress inks,they seem to work the best for me since I have issues blending so I went for coverage then sprinkled with water..I like the blotchy look!
I used a stencil from the crafters workshop called Mini birds of a feather (now don't laugh but as I was looking at my card as I'm writing this I noticed something missing! I had to mask a lot of the stencil because it had a bunch of bird cages but I only wanted one on the branch...I totally forgot I wanted that on cage LOL and didn't realize I hadn't inked that part of the stencil until just now! )
Anyway I really like how it turned out!

  2. Loving your interpretation of Anita's stunning MUSE card; thank you for sharing your idea of sprinkling water when one's ink blending isn't what one had hoped for. I'm going to remember this.

  9. I like this because you went with a different palette and it looks like beyond the tree is a foggy valley. Well done.
