A*MuseA*Palooza

Omgosh, you guys know how obsessed I am with A*Muse stamps right? Well A*Muse is having their 2nd annual A*MuseA*Palooza right now. It has prizes and contests, and tons of stuff. You can check it out by clicking HERE. If you register, please tell them Cori Bravo sent you! **wink**

Here is my card for the first week's challenge. It was to use only black ink. I started out with one of the Brown Cottage Argyle note cards. I trimmed it down a little so that it was a 4 inch square card. Just slightly smaller than they come. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the fence across the card in Noir hybrid black ink. Once the fence was complete, I used a black stampin' write marker to ink up the birdies (omitting the wire) and used the SAMJ again to line them up and stamp them on the fence.

Next, I masked off a portion of the fence and then stamped "Patch" on the ground behind the fence in the black Noir ink. I colored the whole card in with my Prismacolor Markers, and then stamped the sentiment "A little birdie told me" on the bottom of the card in the Noir black ink.

It seemed a little dull to me, so to finish it up, I used some icicle stickles to bling up the birdies' feathers a bit. I really like this card, I think it makes a nice "sister" to the card I made last week before the evil illness wiped me out. **wink**.

Keep checking back, I got a TON of new A*Muse stamps this week while I was sick. (There was nothing else to do but shop, hehe) and the A*Musea*Palooza is the perfect reason to ink them up.
