I participated and helped coordinate a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop that was posted last week. If you missed it, click here to hop along.
I got the idea to CASE the designs shared on the other blogs. I am CASEing Emilie Poncelet today. Click here to see her design. She used pacific point, emerald envy and crushed curry to accent her peacock. I was drawn to this color combination too.
I made some substitutions based on what I had on hand, swapping out the Sale-A-Bration Beautiful Peacock stamp set for Touches of Texture. I needed to add color to my focal point so used the emerald envy marker to highlight the stamens.
To draw the eye to the focal point, I added the gold mini tinsel trim wrapped around a 2 x 5.5 inch piece of Pick a Pattern designer series paper. To further accentuate the focal point, I inked the longest stamp from Touches of Texture with crushed curry ink and applied towards the bottom of the dsp.
Emilie had scattered the three ink colors towards the edges of her card with smaller, assorted sized, stamp images. Touches of texture does not have an assorted smaller size option so I stamped the smaller flower 4 times which draws the eye across the card and invites the reader to open the card.
The card needed a little more color so I reached for a sponge dauber to add crushed curry ink around the focal point and also the top and bottom of the card. Interestingly enough, when I consulted Emilie’s post after I was all done designing, I noticed she used a sponge dauber too but in a different way. She added ink directly to the plume stamp.
Hope you are enjoying my CASEing the Blog Hop! Check back tomorrow for another CASE. Thanks for stopping by!
