Today is Queen Kat's Royal Blog Hop!  Today is photo inspiration day and I have to tell you, to me ~ this image just screams Diva.... 

qkd - 10-26 inspiration

So what better image than Briggitte!  I create a card plus a little charm from the same background paper which I created using the Mousse Me technique.

Diva - Thank You

QKD - 10-26

If things work out I'll be back later this afternoon to share a quick and easy frame project that welcomes Autumn by bringing Mother Nature in to your home.


Be sure to check back later today ;)


  1. TFS! Your card is absolutely divine!! Now, I know what to do with that can of mousse that I never use anymore :) I used to do a similar technique with my preschoolers. We used shaving cream and liquid water colors, mixed and then gently scraped off the shaving cream with a popsicle stick.
    If you read this, would you please share your technique for the charm? It looks as if it is glossy accents, dried and then stamped. Am I right?

  2. Thank you!

    Yes, the shaving cream technique is very similar to this technique. The Mousse Me technique adds a bit more color and a little different results because you leave the mousse on the paper so the colors are more intense and you get nifty little bubble marks from the mousse.

    I stamped the image on a small scrap of the background paper using Archival Ink. I stamped "Diva" over the image. I then trimmed and mounted it in the charm base. Next I covered it with a layer of Glossy Accents. After the GA has dried it's ready to wear!

  3. Roni - Thanks so much for your response and explaining things so well! In my search for something new, this site was exactly what I was looking for!! It is giving me the kind of inspiration that I was hoping to find. Your love of techniques really shines through :)

  4. beautiful background on this card, lovely image. the charm is a lovely addition.

  5. I LOVE your card Roni, those are such elegant images :o)
