CASEplorations!

A very Happy Monday,

Today I am playing along at the CASEplorations challenge at STAMPlorations.

This month the challenge is to CASE a fabulous card by the very talented and fun Kimberley. I always admire Kimberley's cards and when I saw her card for STAMPlorations I had to join in the fun.

Here is what I came up with:



And here is Kim's card:


As you can I see I kept to Kim's lay out but decided to have my base as a pastel mix of water colours. I had to leave this overnight as I water coloured straight onto the base card so it needed a night to flatten out.

The rest of the card was created with a little help from my crafty friends.

 -I used a die cut that STAMPlorations DT member Maria sent me.
 -I heat embossed the sentiment that is from the STAMPlorations 'celebrate artsy' set-a pressie from Nonni
-the washi stickers are from Kim

Aren't craft friends the best!!

I finished off the card by using enamel dots instead of the butterflies Kimberley used.

I really enjoyed making this card. Kimberly's card was so inspiring-thank you!


I will also enter this into 'Add a butterfly/colour challenge' at House of Cards
