Flower Challenge: CASE a DT member..
I saw the latest Flower Challenge theme over at a friend's blog and really liked the idea -
I decided to CASE Karren J's card -
I really loved the stenciling on her card and the bold flower and sentiment. It felt like a card I would make.
I kept pretty true to Karren's card, I stenciled one half of my stitched die-cut panel, I used varying shades of green Distress Ink, starting from the bottom with the darker colour and moving up with the lighter shades. The stencil is a new Tim Holtz mini stencil (set #27) and is called Diamonds.
I love the Wheat stamp by Inkadinkadoo, it is part of a really beautiful set called Meadow that I have had for a while. The sentiment was a freebie with a UK card magazine and I thought it worked here - ok, I know that Wheat doesn't bloom, but you catch my drift right?
I made my panel bigger than Karren's and affixed it to a coordinating coloured card blank.
What a fun theme, a great way to mix old with new. I hope that Karren likes my CASE of her card.
p.s I am an idiot! As this posted I realised that my 'wheat' is not a flower (sobs) maybe I'll remake it over the weekend?
