More Mommy/Daughter Fun!

A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA Design Challenge #1

Michaela and I each did a card for A-Muse-a-Palooza 2008 Design Challenge #1. This challenge is a color combo and the colors to use are Chocolate Kitchen, Cabana Blue, and Purple Passion (or similar colors if you don't have these.) The card must feature at least 1 A Muse stamp image.

More details on A-Muse-a Palooza and this challenge can be found HERE.

For my 5 x 5 card I used 2 clear sets from A Muse. Coffee Break and Circle Frames. I created the background by stamping spoons with black and coloring in with Lilac Prisma Marker. Then I stamped the Coffee beans with SU Close to Cocoa Classic. Coffee Cup is samped on white 2x. Colored in both and cut out 1 and attached it on top with dimensional. Purple circle with sentiment is popped up on dimensionals. Spoon samped on white and cut out.

Stamps - A Muse Art Stamps - Coffee Break & Circle Frames
Paper - SU Lavender Lace CS, SU Creamy Caramel CS, SU Bliss Blue CS, Neenah White CS
Ink - Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Close to Cocoa Classic
Misc - Prismacolor Markers, Marvy Uchida Circle Punches; Dimensionals

Michaela used a clear sets from A Muse called Animal Wishes. Water is stamped using Brilliance Peacock ink pad. On her 5x3 1/2 Cardbase she scored a couple lines down the right side (yes I taught her how to use the Scor-It board!) Elephants stamped with black. She colored 1 elephant with Copic Cool Gray 1 and the other she used a silver pen. Both have pink toe nails (of course!) and the girl has a pink bow. Check out how she used the silver pen to draw splashes from their trunks. Sentiment stamped with black and punched with SU Oval Punches - attached with dimensional. She finished off by adding the required brown color with a bow in the corner. I'm so proud of my little stamping companion! :)
