CASEplorations May

Hi All,

May is here, and that means the start of a new CASEplorations Challenge over at STAMPlorations. This month we are taking our inspiration from no other than Shery Russ herself ...

Shery made this card a while ago, that's before she changed her blog to The One Layer Mixed Media Girl, hence her original card and post can be found here.

What inspiration can we take from Shery's card ...

  • stencil
  • watercolouring
  • pink and yellow colour combination
  • one-layer
  • black splatters
  • Mother's Day
I went with one-layer and stencil. Instead of watercolouring, I used ink blending and spritzing of the stencil before taking the print. Given that I've made quite a few pink and yellow cards recently, I decided to team my pink (Strawberry Slush) with Coastal Cabana instead. The black was replaced with Elegant Eggplant. Here is my take on Shery's card ...

I was working with the ARTplorations Stencils: Floral Mania of which I took a print before sponging with Coastal Cabana. I then added my sentiment from the Strong Women set, a wonky stitched line from the Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Squares set and a few sequins to finish.

Here is another look ...

Are you feeling inspired to CASE? ... the current CASEplorations Challenge remains open for the whole month of May. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to join ... and for more inspirationon how to CASE of course.

That's it from me for today.

Have a lovely week!
