case study challenge 83

Ah, spring really feels like it's here! Warmer days, lighter too, bit of sunshine - perfect! I must check but I think here in the UK our clocks go forward this weekend :)

Anyhow, enough rambling let me jump straight in with this CAS beauty from Laura as this weeks card to inspire us at CASE study.


I pretty much kept all elements of Laura's card, just switched out the paper and stamps. I loved the full length panel popped up over the patterned paper and kept my image and sentiments down in the lower part of the panel too.


Supplies: Stamps - Paper Smooches healthy vibes; Inks - Versafine onyx black; Paper - My Mind's Eye lime twist life of the party; Markers; Clear Embossing Powder

I tried different ways of using this plaster stamp - paper piecing, die cut heart out of red card etc but in the end I like it simply coloured with my markers. I've had a couple of questions about which markers I use. I use the term "marker" generally as I have Copics, Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I mainly use Promarkers for a number of reasons - they are more widely available in the UK, cheaper and I like the fine tip you can add on over the bullet nib. I have found that (within reason) Promarkers and Copics can be used together too :)

Thanks for your clarification of the markers. Love that "plaster" stamp (over here we call 'em bandaids, but had a little neighbor from York area who called them that...).

And I didn't even realise I was being "all English" with this one!

Yup, that's one seriously cute plaster! (I was recently commented on for using the term plaster instead of bandaid on my recent card too! I couldn't type the word bandaid without thinking about the Band Aid charity single! LOL!)
Anyways I digres! A fabby card (and I'm with you on the Promarkers for exactly the same reasons)
Hugs!

Beautiful cards Debbie!
You mentioned the clocks changing: if you fancy something else with a bit of visual splendour, have a look at this: http://bit.ly/GIbQXZ
