Over at Waltzingmouse there is a competition to do a CASE card. What, I hear you ask, is a CASE card? Well I wish I knew, but my interpretation is that you are inspired by a card and produce something based on that idea. I call it Copy A Stunning Example!
So I chose Anya Schriers card below as my inspiration, I'm sure you can see why!
I started by stamping my images onto some white card. I rarely stamp and cut out, but thought I would for a change. I mainly used the Walztingmouse Teeny Trees set. I stamped a variety of colours for the trees (Forest Moss distress ink, Olive Pastel Colourbox and Warm green Colourbox.) The trunks were stamped with Chesnut Whispers, the sun with mellow moss. Once they had dried I cut them out.
I used my spellbinders labels 1 die to cut the frame from the inside of a cereal box. I would have liked the frame to be thicker, but that made the inside of the frame too small for the images I was using. I want some Grand dies!!!So I used the two larger dies from the standard set. The great thing about doing frames is that you're left with a lovely extra label for another project!
The final thing was to colour the sun with a yellow embossing pen and then emboss with clear powder to give it a little shine (it doesn't show up well on the photo). Some green paper was ripped to make the hills and I used a tiny amount of cracked sapphire distress ink to give the background a light blue touch.
I hope you like it!
