A CASE card ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Before I forget to do so I want to say thank you for all the lovely comments you have left for me especially with this stamp set. I love playing with this set and it seems you all love them too, and that makes me very very happy lol! When I saw the CASE card at Happy Little Stamper’s Challenge this month I had to play along and here is my interpretation …
I love it! Very CASE but with lots of character too!

Wednesday’s Creative Inspirations Challenge #249 Your Favourite Things:
creating stuff; flowers; paints; stamping; techniques
I loved the fact that the stamped flower was on both the top and bottom layer, that is a look that I have always loved and it was a technique I learnt when on the Design Team at Technique Time Tuesday. I slightly changed my interpretation by stamping the flower twice, once at the top and once at the bottom. I couldn’t find a similar leaf stamp so I stamped the flower again and I didn’t leave them black and white this time, I chose to carry the colour over to both layers. I want to do this again with other flowers so I’m hoping to get another made for the challenges.
As I also wanted to enter Spectrum Noir’s challenge I needed to create a project with pastel colours. The top flower is a little darker than I hoped but the bottom one is spot on. I made two washes using the white from the Essentials set as well as the blue from the Landscape set, and the pink from the Beautifully Grunge set. My next attempt with other flowers will be stamped and, hopefully, coloured with my Spectrum Aqua pens – they are so wonderfully juicy it is amazing how far the colour goes and how beautifully clean the colour is too.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
