I had time to play along with another challenge today and the deadline is tonight so I'll have two posts in one day . . .hope you don't mind :)
This time I'm playing along with CASE Study and the muse is Kristii Lockart. I absolutely love this challenge because not only do you get to be inspired it introduces you to talent you've never seen before :) Here is Kristii's adorable card
I immediately fell in love with that lightly inked background circle. So subtle but adds so much! I also thought the sweet flower garden at the bottom was just lovely. With these things in mind I started my card.
So these aren't Hero Arts stamps. I know you are shocked that I own anything that isn't Hero Arts. I actually own plenty that isn't but none of them stacked up in quality to what I was used to so I don't use them. But these stacked up quite nicely, these stamps are Sweet Stamp Shop. The quality is fantastic and the images are adorable so I'm pretty happy :)
Anywho I started by die cutting my circle from a white panel the same size as my card front. I traced my circle onto my card base and inked it up with broken china. The clouds are from Scootin' By and they were also stamped in broken china. I laid my die cut panel on top then stamped my flowers. The flowers are from Sweet Spring.
The sentiment was stamped and trimmed into a banner. I adhered it to my panel then added some pretty baker's twine from doodlebug. I USED TWINE, YAY! I have so much of it, I just never use it (shame on me, I know).
I adhered the panel to my card base with dimensional adhesive. The flowers were stamped and colored with copics then trimmed out. I added them with two layers of dimensional adhesive so they really stand out. Some stardust stickles make them shine :)
Okay I'm really done for today, promise ;) Thanks for looking!
