case study challenge 74

Are you ready? Ready for another fabulous creation from Jen Rzasa! Yep it's CASE study time and this week we have this colourful and graphic card for inspiration from our muse.

It might not be immediately obvious where I went with my card today. You see when I looked at Jen's card I immediately thought of Papertrey Ink's modern basics. I wanted to try a technique of patting distress inks onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then putting the stamp to the ink before pressing on card. So I got my modern basics stamp and did the above imagining a blue/green graphic pattern going up the left of my white panel. However, I must have spritzed a bit too much resulting in a wet splody pattern. Oops! I put my attempt to one side .... then looked at it again .... and brought it back. I actually quite liked that splodgy pattern! So I took it one step further and splattered some blue ink drops too. Before stamping a black flourish.

Pin It

Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink modern basics, fancy flourishes; Waltzingmouse Stamps say it with style; Inks - Distress Inks peeled paint, broken china, Versafine onyx black; Card - Stampin' Up basic black; Dies - Papertrey Ink angled labels; Stampin' Up rhinestones

I kept the sentiment offset to one side similar to Jen's but just popped it up on a label to help it stand out from the background.

This week CASE study is sponsored by My Creative Classroom, an online arts and crafts learning center. They are offering a free seat to a class of their choice.

Pop by the rest of the team for more inspiration.

I absolutely love the look of this card. Watercolours are supposed to be a decorating trend this year, so you are right on track! I'm going to try this technique myself. Thanks Debby.
