It's a brand new year, brand new month and we have a brand new muse at CASE Study! It's the fabulously talented Amber Kemp-Gerstel from Damask Love (a totally cool website btw!). I'm always in awe of this lady's work, she is amazing!! Check out her adorable inspiration card.
I stuck pretty close to Amber's design, I love those cascading hearts! So, I super-sized the hearts and did a little repeat stamping just using two colors and the cool woodgrain heart from My Heart by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I used Memento Rose Bud ink and Lady Bug ink and just stamped them in a random pattern, stamping twice without inking up between stamping to achieve the lighter tones. The text I stamped using two alphabet sets, one (Typewriter Letters) from Hero Arts and one (Chelsea Alphabet) from Inkadinkado.
Never content to leave the white space alone, I added a little subtle lace and some red buttonhole twine. I was pleasantly surprised with the results, although I did practice my stamping on some scrap paper first, I was a bit nervous of the random stamping!
Don't forget to check out the CASE Study blog and the creations from the rest of the team! I love the variety this team brings!! I'm so proud to me amongst them! : )
