Amusing Challenge – Texture

Time for a new Amusing Challenge…and it’s one that I love.  Texture!  I normally think embossing, burlap or cardboard…but see what the design team has in store for you this week!  Throughout the month I’ll have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.   I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner.  UPDATED:  June’s winner will receive this from me…a brand new small stocking die (originally I had posted that it would be the web die but these are all SOLD OUT!)


Cyndi has a lot of fun details going on in this card and I love how she created some texture with her layers of circles and rings.  I love the pop of the Papaya Petite Polka cardstock from A Muse Studio.  She also used two retiring A Muse Studio stamp sets: Essential Sentiments and Script Background…both are now marked down to 55% off!

I used an image and sentiment from Hola Amigo, it’s soon to be released in the new 2014 A Muse Studio catalog (going LIVE 1 July).   I have had some stencil sheets and paste for a few months and finally this was a great chance to use them.  Once the paste dried, I inked the raised edges with my Lime A Muse Studio ink pad.  Of course, some of the ink got on the cardstock so I just sponged and inked all the edges.  Looks like it was meant to be!  I also added some chunky glitter around the edge of the glass with Crystal Glaze.  My glass was quickly colored with Copics.  Even though there is some added details, this remains a pretty CAS card!

Here’s a peek of a card I will be sharing tomorrow!  Lots of gold dust Splash! and more texture…

You can see more of A Muse Studio Progressive Retirement sale here…remember, it’s only while supplies last and the savings end June 30th!  I can hardly believe it’s just one more week of the sale and then the new catalog goes LIVE!  You can see some inspiration here in two galleries I created

  1. There is a cut & paste leftover from previous challenge that needs to be corrected/removed:
    This week you need to use at least 4 colors…but it can be more.

    Like the texture challenge.
