case study challenge 126

It's time for the more inspiration from Amber our CASE Study muse for January. I have totally enjoyed caseing Amber this month not only for her fabulous projects and stunning photography but also for her open and honest approach to blogging.

On to todays card and I was inspired by the panel with cardstock strip over a strong background pattern. When Hero Arts released their new stamps for 2013 I got inky with the tweed pattern background stamp. Today I wanted to have another go at this technique to create a strong background for my card.

I inked up my craft sheet with Distress Inks in barn door, spiced marmalade and mustard seed, squirted with a solution of perfect pearls and then squooshed the stamp around on the sheet before stamping onto a white card base. I love the heat these colours evoke when used together.

In this photo you can see a bit of the perfect pearls shine on the tweed pattern and also the glossy accents I added to the hearts to make them pop from the background.

This card also fits amazingly well with day 3 of Clean & Simple Card Making 2 which is a happy coincidence as it was actually made a couple of days before hand LOL.

Ready for another dose of inspiration? Check out the rest of the crew :)

As soon as I saw the new CASE Study challenge I was thinking I could combine this sketch with one of the C&S2 assigments...and then I saw your card. Love it! I may have to borrow your idea, since I had been playing with the same colours (Memento ink, not distress) and the same stamp (the only 'solid' background stamp I own right now), but had not yet figured out how to combine the two. I had been thinking about using distress inks to create a similar effect to what Jennifer was showing but had not given it a try yet. BTW, thanks for your guest appearance. Really enjoyed your video and love your card and the way you have used labels.
