Washi Muse #5

I stumbled across the Muse Card Club blog today and love their concept of a supportive, inspirational, and challenge oriented group. Their rules are pretty simple:

1) Use the featured card as your inspiration
2) Provide comments to at least three other challenge members.
3) Vote for three of your favorite cards for the challenge.


I'm sure it's going to be a great way to meet other crafters and get that needed creative boost I've been looking for!

For this card I was inspired to create an entire background with Washi tape. I've used it as accents but never this much for one project. I like how it turned out but next time I'd switch out the polka dots for something a bit more tame. The challenge card was just bursting with punches of color which I loved. This didn't turn out like I had it in my head but I'm still pretty happy with the masculine look.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Hi Sarah, welcome to the Muse Club. I have been playing since it started and have loved it. I love the striking effect of your card and I really like the polka dot, so think it is perfect as it is!

This is fabulous, Sarah. I especially love the way you've added the washi tape on an angle - it really adds so much interest. That pop of bright yellow is a real zinger, too!

Julie said...

Love this! Great color combo and I love that you set it all on an angle.

Oh I LOVE the masculine bold look of your card Sarah! It's a great take on the Muse card!!! The large "HELLO" Rocks!

Fabulous use of the washi tape and that big bright Hello is perfect against the dark background! Anita in France :)

This is super. I like how you put your washi on the diagonal (that's what I did too). The font on those bold letters is just perfect.

Meg said...

Wowzers! I love this bold card! the striped background marries perfectly with the bold white HELLO!

Love the horizontal stripes and mega HELLO! Your card really pops :)

Love that you changed the orientation of the stripes and put them on the angle. I like the polka dots too - great card.
