CASE Study - CASE a design team member
This week at CASE Study we're CASEing a design team member. I picked one of Teneale's fabulous cards to CASE. Here's the card I chose. My card kinda evolved as I was making it! (I couldn't resist a splash of color!)
I loved the neutral background, the contrast of the bold black ribbon and card, the use of a quotation and of course the flowers, so I CASEd all of these elements in my card.
The flower and leaves I stamped using Roses in Bloom from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I colored them using Distress Markers and blended the colors with a fantastix coloring tool and water. I really wanted lots of depth so I really highlighted the light and shadows.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I embossed the lower half of the white cardstock using a herringbone embossing folder.
The card base I made by recycling the back of an old sketch pad. I really like the neutral tone. The baker's twine is from The Twinery. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's creations. Oh and I think there's a really cool opportunity to become a Guest Designer at CASE Study!! Check out the CASE Study blog for all the details! : )
