It’s Amazing at Muse!

Oh WOW I just adore these two stamp sets from Altenew and I’ve had this idea in my head for what seems like ages.  So I thought I would share it with you at Muse because I cannot wait to see how this inspires you!

Amazing! - Detail

  1. Therese, I ADORE this, and since I have NOT touched this set, I will be tonight!!!!! Thanks for this inspiration!!!

  2. Stunning card!
    Therese can you maybe tell me what the difference is between prisma premier and spectrum noir pencils is?
    i am thinking of buying them…but since i already own,Copics,SU markers,Distress markers and watercolor pencils.I don’t know if I should or shouldn’t try it…what do you think?

    1. Hi Holly,
      Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I adore my Prismacolor Pencils and would have to say they have been one of the best investments that I have made when it comes to colouring. I think they are easier and more versatile than Copics (although these are fab too). The best thing about them is that if you already own Copics you can use them together, just colour with your Copic’s first and then use the Prisma’s to add shading and depth or highlights! I’ve not tried the Spectrum Noir’s (apparently these are oil based so very similar to use) but there are heaps of gorgeous colours…. and they look beautiful on the cards that I have seen coloured with them. I have a vague memory of Jennifer MacGuire doing a comparison video on pencils a little while ago, if I find the link I’ll send it on to you. I do want to say that I have tried the Faber Castell Polychromos pencils (these are also an oil based and can be blended with baby oil or mineral spirit) they look great but didn’t seem to blend as easily and once I purchased my set of Prismas these were pushed aside, maybe I should try these again.
      hope this is helpful

  3. You’re so right, Therese. This card is AMAZING! I love the colours used. It’s hard to believe that you could get such a result on such a strong background colour. Well done!
    P.S. Congrats on your Guest Tutor section in ACS&P! Gorgeous.

  4. Therese, Ummnnn Well.. I have never cased a card to well… I apologize in advance when this comes out Thursday…and I link to MUSE. Well…impersonation is a copliment, I replicated it when I was trying for inspiration… HUGS. Kimberly, tell you don’t mind I hope…

  5. So sorry for my late post…This is truly stunning, Therese! I love how you played with this stamp set, and that you chose Taffy for your background! So pretty!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
