Muse Challenge #9 & Moxie Fab World Chevron Challenge



I have a card to share for this week's Muse challenge and for the Moxie Fab World Chevron Challenge.










This week our beautiful Muse card was created by Marion Vagg.  




I was drawn to the shades of blue on her card and the white embossing.  I kept my card very CAS this time bringing the colours on to the grey card base using chevron strips of cardstock. The sentiment is from my new favourite stamp set Flower Friend by Simon Says Stamps.




Cardstock:  Soft Grey, Blueberry Sky,Spring Rain, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Flower Friend (Simon Says Stamps)
Ink:   VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Dies: Chevrons (Papertrey Ink)
other: white embossing powder

Really, really cute card Tracey. I love the chevrons set on an angle and it is such a great take on the inspirational picture.

Joyce said...

This is so pretty--those angled chevrons are such a fun look, and I love the colors together. You did such a great job of being inspired by key elements of the card without just copying it, which I always seem to want to do.

Marybeth said...

Just perfect for the Muse card! Very pretty!

Jean said...

Love your CAS take on the Muse card ~ the softer colors look great ~ you might want to enter this at Moxie Fab World for their chevron challenge.

Really lovely card I love how you have used the chevron die .

Kim S said...

I might have thought of using chevrons, but it wouldn't have occurred to me to angle them - it's fabulous. And the blues on the gray base are a perfect choice!

Bonnie said...

So simple but so classy!

Sharron said...

Great take on the inspiration photo--placing the chevrons at an angle adds so much interest! Love the toned down grey!
