Barcode Muse ....

.... Good afternoon!  I do hope you've all been enjoyed lovely summer weather; it's been fabulous here today.  And what have I been doing?  Well, playing in my craft room and watching the football (soccer for my American friends).  This is a quick post as I'm about to watch the USA v Portugal match.  Now that England is out of the World Cup, I'm really hoping that USA progress.  Here's my card:

Stamps: PTI - Wet Paint, Background Basic: Random Stripe
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Denim
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Night of Navy, Soft Suede

This is my take on Marion's beautiful MUSE card - MUSE#72.  I've gone for a more masculine style card with darker colours and a more graphic image.  I used the fun Random Stripe stamp from PTI and inked it with my Kalediacolor pad - I like the way the colours change up the stamped image.  I used the same pad to ink up the big, bold sentiment.  I made the card base from Night of Navy and added a think strip of soft suede to pick up the colour from the stamped image.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of soft suede and used an off cut of the stamped stripe to edge the white panel.  There is no other sentiment inside.

That's it for now.  Off to make a coffee and watch the footy!  Go America!  I believe!  Fingers crossed :)

Deborah, I love your take on Marion's card. The hello is my favorite. I love all of the colors. I have to get my hands on that ink. Great job.
