CASE study #185 and Hello to three new Members!
I have not done this in a really long time - please excuse me, I know its sooooo overdue!
I had three new members join my blog! Thank you so much. Its lovely to have you here. I hope you visit often and like what you see. And now in the order of joining:
(so sorry could not find a link, but I will edit it in if you can give me one)
Both Miriam and Hannelie have fantastic blogs - if you don't know them already, head on over and admire their work!
And as customary I have a welcome picture for you:
Those eggs are by Beth Magnusen. Some of her eggs were exhibited at a small museum near where I live. Her carvings are just amazing. I normally show my own pictures here, but I took this picture from the internet, as my own did not come out so well - the reflecting glass case wrecked my pictures....
I think I have played only once in the CASE study so far......I may change that....this beautiful card by the awesome Jaclyn Miller just spoke to me....
Tonight I finally had an idea how to make my own version of it. I used the Papertrey Big Vases dies and made my own stencil and then sponged three of the four vases partially onto white card stock.
The flowers are by STAMPlorations- Eclectic Florals, the setiment is also STAMPlorations- Art Deco Border Builders. The stems I just drew in with pencil. Added a Paper Candy as accent.
Here is a photo of my "stencil"
I'm also adding this card to the Moxie Fab STENCIL challenge,
to Keep it Simple - Stencil
and to Virginia's View challenge - its stencils there too.....
And just for the fun of it I'm linking this with the STAMPlorations April challenge - since sponging is another one of my favorite techniques....
