Muse Framed

Therese Calvird is our muse this week. I've taken inspiration from her card layout and inverted it. I've used the same shaped card, plus I've framed my image in a dark solid colour with large white border and used five elements with a sentiment. 
The blue flamingo amongst the pink ones reminded me of Vincent Van Gogh's Irises: one white flower in a sea of blue, of being alone in a crowd, standing tall and being yourself.

I coloured the daisies & cardstock with Promarkers/Flexmarkers.  I love the flick the Flexmarkers provide and I look forward to practicing this technique.


Stamps: Wplus9 Love Birds 
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black 
Dies & Punches etc: Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies Die 
Paper: White card from stash
