…I’m Being CASEd! (CSC21)

Don’t Forget To Check Out My Stamp Sale HERE…Prices Have Been Reduced AGAIN!

Yep…I’m being CASEd, and I’m even CASEing myself!  I was approached by Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) from the CASE Study Challenge Blog a couple of months ago to be the Guest Muse for her January challenges, and I jumped at the opportunity.  Each Thursday they will post an inspirational piece created by me, and will challenge you all to CASE it in some way.  Here’s my new sample:

…and it’s based on this card:

CASE_Study_102710_010611

I decided to use the layout from the original sample, but I changed the color palette, the stamps used, and the sentiment placement.  I used “Wonderful Winter Wishes” from There She Goes, stamped the image in Black Ink and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers. Instead of using grass for the image to stand on, I added some Chunky Crystal Crafty Sparkles from Our Craft Lounge instead.  I paired the completed focal panel with some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket’s Pixie-Licious paper pad along with some White and Plum Pudding Cardstock from PTI.  I Paper Pierced and Distressed the edges of the large green patterned paper panel, then Stitched the crooked strips together before adding them the green panel.  After adding some Ribbon, Silver Pearls, and several Dimensionals the card was complete.  So did I do a good job CASEing myself?  :)

Check out the samples from the rest of the CSC team:

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to stop by the CASE Study Challenge Blog to see the official rules and linking tools to play along.  I’ll see you all back here tomorrow with another TGF Farm Fresh Friday Challenge, so until then…

I think you've done an awesome job CASEing yourself! Your coloring skills are to die for, I read your post about the best of 2010 and it's hard to believe that you didn't even use Copics until recently! You have certainly mastered them quickly! Thanks for providing such great inspiration this month, I'm looking forward to CASEing your wildly creative cards!
