CASE Challenge

In the Snow Heart Tilda

We have a new challenge for you today over at Inkspirational Challenges and this time it’s a…….

So what you need to do for this challenge is pop on over to Yvonne’s blog and find a card that you would like to CASE.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything.

You card/creation needs to resemble Yvonne’s (and we need to be able to see the resemblance) but you also need to put your own twist on it. So you might wish to keep the layout or theme of her card but change out the image, papers & embellishments, etc.

We can’t wait to see what you all come up with so come join us at Inkspirational.

Here’s the card I chose to CASE of Yvonne’s.

Here’s my creation.

I’ve loved Yvonne’s layout for her card so I have kept most of this. I also stuck to her Christmas theme but have gone totally away from Yvonne’s vintage look to a cute Tilda card which I guess still has a vintagey feel with the dsp, sponging, lace, etc.

My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin- E00, E000, E0000 R20; Hair – E44, E42, E40; Clothes – BG78, BG75, BG72 & BG90, Boots – C8, C6, C4, C2, C0.

I’ve added some liquid applique to her mittens and beanie and also Frantaged a little around the image. This was my first attempt at using Frantage and I managed to achieve the soft look I wanted (although I would have liked a little more of the gold) and best of all I didn’t make a mess…

Here’s a closer look at the image.

And another

For the inside of my card I’ve used some more of the DSP and another doily to tie it all together.

I love how this turned out. Hope you like it too. Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know.

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week is……

CASE yourself or a DT member.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings and they have provided us with some images to create and inspire you with.

I have chosen to CASE one of our DT members, Shanna Shands, and use the lovely ‘Shades of Blue’ image from Aurora Wings.

Here is Shanna’s card that I am CASEing.

Here’s what I came up with.

I’ve gone with the layout that Shanna has used minus an embellishment in the bottom left corner.

Isn’t this image gorgeous!!!

My image has been printed onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

I’ve used some variegated dsp from My Mind’s Eye which I’ve chosen the colours from for my image.

The colours I have used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000; Hair – E44, E42, E40; Dress, Wings & Dark Flowers – BG75, BG72, BG70; Other Flowers – G24, G21, G20 or YG25, YG23, YG21.

Here’s a closer view of the image.

Here’s another angle of the card showing the sparkle I’ve added to the wings.

You can see the sparkle but still not all of it. The wings are totally covered in sparkle which makes this card look much prettier in real life.

The Aurora Wings images are gorgeous and I’m sure I will be using them again.

Some of the other DT members have used Grumpy Fae from Aurora Wings. I made a card recently using this image which you can view here.

I hope my card inspires you in some way and you enter our challenge.
