CASEplorations May

Happy May Day! Even though my yard is full of Spring flowers, the weather still hasn't decided exactly what it wants to do.

We at CASEplorations, want you to CASE the flowery card from our fearless leader, Shery Russ, this month. It's even got a Mother's Day theme if you need to get a card made. You can check out Shery's card in her blog post here. Here's my CASE.

I stuck with the pink and yellow color combo, keeping yellow more prevalent cuz my Mom doesn't like pink ;) I love how pink and yellow mix to yield orange. Mom will like that little touch.

On watercolor paper, I first inked up my ARTplorations Daisy Dance stencil with Mustard Seed, spritzed it and "stamped" it. When dried a bit, I put the stencil down and sponged Worn Lipstick through it like normal. Removed the stencil and gave it a light spritz of water to mingle the colors a little bit.

Stamped the sentiment from Big on Words - Mom and the coordinating bloom from Bloom Sketches three times in black and added Black Soot splatters to my panel and cardbase.

Die cut the panel and adhered it.

We would love to see you CASE Shery's card and hook it up in the CASEplorations gallery this month. There are prizes to be had as always and the gallery is open until the end of the month.

I'm heading to the gallery at Addicted to Stamps and More with this card. It's Anything Goes!

And over at Mod Squad where the theme is Mother's Day.
