CASEing Lime Doodle
I have had a fun morning! Apart from the usual "Mum" duties and housework, I have spent some time playing with colour and design while responding to CASE Study #51, using The Play Date Cafe colours.
This week at CASE Study, it is their anniversary blog hop. I'm halfway through hopping, and so far it is well worth the ride. There is some awesome work to check out. This week's challenge is to choose one of the DT to CASE. Lucky for me, one of the people who totally inspires me every time she posts her work is on this team - Debby at Lime Doodle.
The colours over at The Play Date Cafe for Challenge 93 are delicious this week. Some of my favourite colours in the whole wide world!
The card I am CASEing is this one here:
With my card, I really tried to keep the same clean and simple feel, but I think I've managed to load it up a bit more than Debby does. I'm going to keep on casing Debby, because there is a lot to learn for me in her work! Here is my effort:
Now this looks really easy, but it is essentially a one-layer card with a little bit of decoration, so when you make a boo-boo, you have to start again. . . I'll show you later. What I used: SU patterned papers (retired), PTI sentiment (Botanical Silhouettes), Jane's Doodles image stamps (Garden Friends), Build a Cupcake punch (clouds), Derwent Inktense pencils (my new LOVE), Memento Tuxedo black ink (my other new love).
So back to the boo-boo, which I am showing you, because I've sparked more ideas for even CLEANER cards, and I thought you might like a look at the card pre- paper-piecing. The mistake is the up hill sentiment, LOL. In my eyes, this card is almost perfect all nude like this. A tiny tweak here and there (and a straight sentiment), and this would be ready to give away.
So what do you think?
