CASE Study #118
Thursday, November 22, 2012
It's our fourth week at CASE Study with the amazing Angeline Yong as our muse. I stepped outside my comfort zone with this card and created a one layer, all stamped card *gasp*, I know, not an embellishment in sight! Check out Angeline's super card.
I was really inspired by the stamping and the layout with central focal point. Instead of autumn leaves I used some Festive Foliage from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I did practice my stamping arrangement on a scrap piece of paper first. I wasn't that brave!
The dark green leaves I stamped using Memento Cottage Ivy, the lighter green leaves I stamped using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink but when I was stamping it I stamped it first on a scrap piece of paper to give a lighter result with the second impression. The sentiment is from Say it Loud - Winter Holiday from Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in Jet Black and Cherry Red.
I think it's the little pops of red that bring this card alive. I'm actually pretty happy with how this one turned out considering I hardly ever do one layer cards! I can't wait to see what the rest of the CASE Study DT have cooked up for you! Isabelle's all better now, she enjoyed the cookies (we all did!).
