CASE Study #49 and PDCC #91
Well, the housework won out to start this week-end. I am hoping to get some more time to stamp tomorrow, but for today it is just one project. On the topic of housework, if anyone out there invents a "doggy vacuum cleaner" let me know. Here is the concept - my shaggy Spoodle (aka a Cockerpoo outside of Australia) "Coco" walks in the door from outside into a chamber which sucks all the dirt, dust, leaves, grass, and sticks off her before she can exit the chamber and enter the house. Do you know, I actually vacuumed the downstairs hallway twice today! Now that's ridiculous, especially since it already looks like it did before the first vacuum, argh!
Today I was working on The Playdate Cafe Challenge #91, which is Black, White, and a splash of ONE other colour.
At the same time, I was working on CASE Study #49. I have so many ideas for this CASE Study, but I may not get to them all. What I've created today isn't exactly what I initially had in mind, so I might give it another go! This is the muse card (gorgeous, isn't it?):
With this card, I was struck by the geometric pattern and did a dig through my box of stamps to try to find something that could work in the same way. I discovered I am short on symmetrical stamps, so I decided to go Christmas and use my snowflakes.
Here is my card:
I originally did a more colourful version, but then I decided the amount of red I'd used didn't really qualify as a "splash" of red. I'll show it to you anyway, and let me know which one you prefer.
This is the other card:
Ink: Basic Black
Card: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Snow Swirled
For those of you curious about what my shaggy doggy looks like, here's Coco:
So what do you think? I love hearing your thoughts.
