Following my muse

Hi everyone,

Today I joining in the fun with Frilly and Funkie where the challenge is to follow your muse. At the moment I'm really crazy about the color Peacock Feathers, my muse screams that to use that color everytime at the moment. I need to do other color combo's as well...

My father's birthday is this Friday and made this card for him. I hope he likes it. He always says what he honestly thinks about it and that is not always what I like to hear... He thinks the process of making it is amazing, but it's not always his taste. I'm very curious what he thinks of this card... Fingers crossed! LOL

For the background I used my favorite Tim technique of the moment. I don't know what it's officialy called. It's the one with the regular Distress Stains in combination with a metallic Distress Stain. Here's a video of that technique with more inspiration for the use of the metallic stains!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
