CASE study challenge #54

So far this anniversary month at CASE study we have challenged you to CASE us the Design Team, CASE other CASE study participants and CASE Chupa! So what's in store for you this week? Well for this week we want you to show us your signature style! Go on, show us what gets your creative juices flowing!

For me, my style is straight forward clean and simple (CAS). No doubt about it. I rambled on about it in this post here, so I won't bore you too much today with the same spiel! I tend to use a lot of white space and white cardstock - you should see how much of that stuff I go through! I do like a good pop of colour, a few details perhaps in some popped up layers, the odd embellishment or sparkle. You get the drift!

So here's one of my white space, white card creations.


And here's how I got to this card. I took my inspiration from this weeks Tuesday Trigger - Girly & Gutsy.


I took the leaves from the rug and stamped them in a fabulous zingy yellow, the flowers from the table and wall colour are represented in that simply gorgeous Prima flower, the black accents are represented by my black sentiment and the sparkly chandelier by my adhesive stones. So what was, for me, a quite detailed photo inspiration, I was able to pare down to a corner of my card which I hope still packs a gutsy punch while appealing to my CAS style. So there you have it - a look in to my signature style!

Here's a closer look at the leaves which a partially cut out and popped up for interest and dimension.



Please pop by and see the other CASE study designers - our styles are varied to give you the most inspiration.

The intriguing thing about this card is the amount of detail confined to such a small space within the background. The color pop and the dimension of the leaves is just amazingly beautiful! Makes me think of a single course in a fine restaurant!

The leaves are just the icing on a very very scrummy cake :D
