Muse Challenge #159; PTI Make it Monday - Score Lines

Hi there,
I'm back with 2 cards for a few different challenges. The first is for this week's Muse Challenge #159. Jenni Murray inspired us with this beautiful card: 




Here is my very literal take on Jenni's card: 


A very sweet friend recently sent this beautiful Poppy Trio stamp to me...Love these gorgeous poppies! I colored them with Copic markers, and framed the design in the same way Jenni did.

This is the first time I'm playing along at PTI's Make it Monday challenge. This week, Laurie Willison shared how she uses score lines on her cards in This Video. I love her CAS designs, and how she adds interest to her cards with this technique, so I decided to create a card using my new stamps/dies.


The score lines are in the lower right-hand corner, and hard to see on screen, so here is a close-up:




The feathers are from PTI What the Doodle mini stamp set, and the sentiment is from Birds & Blooms Anniversary stamp set (no longer available). I blended two shades of blue behind the feathers and added a little silver thread for fun!

So, that's it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by,

Beautiful cards Barb, love the colour you used for your flowers. They look stunning, as does that wonderful feather. I can see what you mean about the partial embossed lines, looks wonderful and draws the eye to the image.

Beautiful shading on your poppies, Barb. You've created so much visual dimension with your wonderful colouring skills. And I LOVE the soft and delicate colours of your feather and background. The scored background really adds a lot of texture and interest. Great job on both cards! xx
