CASEing Aileen

Hi and welcome to a post to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
This week it is the turn of :-


So no pre coloured images or wholly die cut creations, you must use some form of handmade mark.
Here is my inspiration using a Copic coloured image.

Over at Less is More they are asking us to CASE a card and this was my take on it.
I used my STAMPloration Blooming Buds flowers and masked and stamped them into a bouquet on a die cut panel. I used Copics to colour them before adding the silver die cut greeting (Cuttlebug) and the HLS sentiment, stamped and embossed with white EP on black. The finished panel was then attached to a linen effect base card.
For more inspiration check out the rest of the fab DT here.

I'm joining in over at :-



As You Like It Challenge
I love these cosmos style blooms, so easy to colour and they make a great bouquet with the different shaped flowers. Cosmos are my go to flower to fill up my borders in the summer. Love their dancing heads and soft feathery foliage.
