CASE Study Challenge #48

Good Evening,

The card to be CASE'd for this weeks' CASE Study challenge is by Dawn Woleslagle and it is beautiful!

I wish I could've done it the justice it deserves, here is my interpretation.....

These colours are an attempt to encourage the English summer to arrive, and hopefully stick around for longer than a few days at a time - that would be nice!

I blended Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Antique Linen Distress Inks to create the background and then ran it through my Cuttlebug.  The sentiment tag was created using one of Tim Holtz's techniques (the one on the craft mat) using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.  I used much less water though because I wanted a different effect.

Thank you for dropping by, please feel free to leave a comment if the fancy so takes you :)

  1. Oh you did it justice alright! Great sponging!

  2. Great card Sian, I love the graduation of colour as you move down the card, the the twine looks great. It was my first go at this challenge but I think I'll be giving it another go! How about you?
