Say it & Case it with Sunflowers

Hi Everyone,

I’ve had a lovely afternoon putting together a card I was working on over the week-end. Having made my own background paper with distress inks and glossy paper and a bit of water, I had to let it dry before I could use it!

I have used the Case Study Challenge for the layout and design of this card, trying to mimic the Case Muse for the week – who is Jill Foster.

The Annabelle Stamps Say It In challenge was perfect for this card….          


This is my card…..


and this is Jill’s card
Case Challenge 44

Jill’s card has this wonderful background that I’m sure is done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and water splashes. I gave it a go, unfortunately I went a little overboard with the colour and used way too much water to get little splash marks lol. Still I like the effect I achieved. I did end up using a backing plate to allow my flowers to stand out a little as my background colours were a little overwhelming.

My sentiment is an i cling stamp set – and yes – I bought it at the Brisbane Paper craft Fair Winking smile

Hope you all have a lovely week :)
