Welcome to the September installment of CASEplorations. You know the routine. We select one cool card from the blogosphere for your and our CASEing pleasure. Well this month it's a tag. Meet Penny the Pig.
This makes-me-oh-so-happy creation comes to you from Gail. Surely you know Gail. OK, how about ionabunny, of The Crafty Nomad? Yep, that's her. And I love what she did with that sweet piggy.
But alas. Here I sit, still in MI without many supplies, only a few stamp sets and a week that included two funerals for people close to me. So when it came time for me to create a card, the wonderful humor of Gail's creation morphed to a(nother) sympathy card.
So how did I CASE her tag? Pink became monochromatic Abandoned Coral. Floating circles in the BG became floating blooms from Floral Bliss, stamped first with the reverse of the stamp and watered down ink, then correctly. TIP: This works great for stamps that are fairly symmetrical.
I used the grungy frame from the same set, stamped three more blooms on it, roughly where the blooms would match the blooms on my BG, and fussy cut it. This was my nod to Gail's tag. And the torn scrap for my one-word sentiment was my final nod to Gail's sentiment treatment. Sequins definitely could have made their way to this design, and I've only got about a bazillion of them. But, in Germany :(
Hope you enjoyed Gail's fun tag. Would love to see you give it a CASE and join us. Or you can CASE my card (I'd be thrilled) or any of the DT Inspiration Projects coming up during September. Hook up your creations in the Inspiration CASE Playground. It's open until October 5th. Hope to see you there. You could be a lucky random winner!
