Muse Challenge #167

Good morning friends~  Today's cards show one die being used in three different ways.  I've used the Muse Challenge for my inspiration.
Here's this week's Muse from Jenni Murray:

Here's my cards featuring Die-Namites "Birds On A Wire" which is currently on a deep discount as Dies R Us is having a big pre-Memorial Day blowout sale!
On this first card, I cut the die out of water color card stock and colored the birds in using Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  I added some yummy candy dots and a sentiment from PTI's "Bold & Beautiful".

On this card, I used the Zigs to add color to my card base and then did some ink splattering.  I can see that I need lots of practice blending these colors together.  They're not as easy to blend as I thought they'd be.  ;0)  I added the bird die cut from black card stock and a sentiment from PTI's "Swoosh".

And finally I cut a stitched rectangle from Lil' Inker's and did some ink blending using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and cut the bird die to fit the rectangle.  The sentiment is again, from PTI's "Bold & Beautiful" set.

I'll also be adding one of these cards into the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  3. Awesome cards, I love them all but the last one is my favorite. Blending with Zigs is very depending on the kind of paper you use. When the paper absorbs the ink to fast it is hard to blend them properly (hope this make sense, my english is not so well)

  6. Oh my goodness Birgit...these are ALL just stunning! I've seen that bird die before and never thought I'd be able to do anything with it, and look at you go! 3 absolute beauties! I'm totally in love with the first one and so jealous you achieved that fabulous look with the Zigs (I have a love/hate relationship with mine and mostly the later!). They look so perfectly water colored! I really love the look of your 3rd card too...so CAS and elegant! Beautiful job on all of them my friend!! :0)
