CASE Study #79 and Tuesday Trigger: Home Sweet Home
One of the reasons I like entering challenges is that, as well as improving my skills, I am challenged to try different ideas and styles. Those of you who visit me regularly will know that I am primarily drawn to the Clean and Simple style of card making. This preference doesn't stop me attempting to try something different, although sometimes those forays into the unknown are more successful than others!
This month at CASE Study, the muse has been Karola Witczak. Karola makes some really, really beautiful items, and her style is stunning, but she uses so much more than me! Her creations are FULL of beautiful bits and pieces. I really, really love what she creates. If you haven't visited her before, you should take a look, it is a treat of pretty goodness. :-) Anyway, the reason for the long story is that I have taken the plunge and attempted to use a bit more of Karola's style, while still maintaining a sense of my own. Here is Karola's inspiration, it's an altered frame:
The other challenge I am entering is Tuesday Trigger, where the theme this week is Home Sweet Home. This is the inspiration photo:
What I used: PTI Rosie Posie, PTI Tag It's #11, PTI White Card, SU! Old Olive card, Inks are SU! (Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink), Patterned Paper is SU! Everyday Enchantment, Dies PTI Filigrie Border and Canvas Impression Plate, SU! Pool Party ruffled ribbon, SU! Limeade Ribbon.
I like it. What do you think?
P.S. I'd like to add my call to everyone to turn off their Word Verification if they are using Blogger. I have had a number of comments lately that I abandoned because I couldn't get the words right. In about 18 months without WV on my blog, I have received about four spam comments (which I deleted). If you are worried, you can always moderate your comments and delete the naughty ones before they are published. :-) If you need instructions, Susan has done a great picture tutorial.
