CASE Study is holding a Design Team Call Challenge. We are to choose a muse who will push us out of our comfort zone. I chose two.
Firstly, I decided to CASE Sanketi, who I have been admiring for SO LONG for her amazing watercolouring, both in cards and other art. This is my card.
I used PTI Strawberry Patch stamps, stamped in grey, and then watercoloured using Derwent Inktense pencils.
The dark background is a nod to Sanketi's style, she uses dark backgrounds to amazing effect. My card is a little cleaner (reflecting my style). My watercolouring has a long way to go, but I'm working on it. ;-)
This is Sanketi's card:
For my second card, I chose Debby Hughes as my muse. Debby has so many cards I could have chosen, but I wanted to choose one of her "minimalist" cards. Although I am a CAS card maker, Debby takes it to the next level, so CASEing her (for me) is a challenge! This is my card:
I used PTI Round Repeats to make the pattern, SSS Happy, and PTI Stylish Sentiments Birthday.
A while ago Debby mentioned a technique she used for CASEing where she looked at the card, examined the elements, and then went away to make her card without looking back at the original. I did this here. When I thought about Debby's card I thought about bright colours, diamond shapes, and stamping in a pattern.
This is Debby's card:
And now it is the end of the Easter week-end. I have to go to work tomorrow, so I had better get some beauty sleep. Thank-you for coming by to visit!
