...to the CASE Study challenge blog today.
Our inspiration is another pretty card from our July Muse, Shari Carroll.
I was especially inspired by the following elements on Shari's card--white die cut butterflies with pearls, circular die cuts, vintage text paper with butterflies, her warm yellow color scheme, and the friendship sentiment. Here's my take:
I began by stamping my background (Penny Black 30-240 Textures) onto yellow cardstock using Memento Peanut Brittle ink. For my butterfly panel, I first adhered Tim Holtz tissue paper to cardstock and then die cut this using Penny Black's Creative Die 51-053 A Pocket Full. I stamped the butterfly from Penny Black 30-117 Free Flight using Ranger Archival Black ink. I added color to this panel with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art Grip Aquarelle watercolor pencils. I then added a bit of Gesso to the background for a painted effect and inked the edges of the notebook die using Memento Peanut Brittle ink. My sentiment (Penny Black 51-041 Friends Frame) was die cut three times and then I glued each layer together for a thick embellishment. Once dry, I colored this sentiment with ShinHan Art Touch Twin markers. Finally, I adhered all layers together using dimensional adhesive, including my circular element, Penny Black's Creative Die Tabs & Toggles, and butterflies from a Fiskars punch.
