Today I thought I’d have a bit of fun with ink… and I definitely got it everywhere! I am now walking around with green fingertips… but it could be worse, I could have glitter all over my face… actually, I probably do! I thought I would join this week’s CASE Study Challenge as Jill’s card looked irresistable! I was inspired by the basic layout as well as creating my own embossed background. The muted colours that I used made me think this would make a nice sympathy card (I don’t plan on needing one just at the moment, but it is always handy to have one ‘ready to go’).

Oh, it’s so much easier to have these on hand just in case.
I really love how you can see the influence of Jill’s card in yours, but yours is, well, YOURS! (Oh, such fancy words…lol) I really love the colours you’ve chosen, and the gorgeous floral stamp 🙂
The layers are simply stunning! Love the earthy background you created! HUGS!
Tee hee! I’m glad it wasn’t just me walking around with stained fingertips after creating a card for this week’s CASE study!
Totally worth the stained fingers when you see the finished result: what fabulous inking!
Thanks for joining us on CASE study!
This is fabulous Therese, I’m not an’ inky’ sort of crafter but I can still appreciate a wonderful technique when I see it 🙂
Gorgeous use of that technique. I love the colors you used and it would be a wonderful sympathy card.
