This next challenge with GDP is ‘CASE the Designer’…. CASE-ing the amazingly talented Brian King!
(CASED/Copied from GDP)…….LOL!
How does this challenge work?
There are many definitions of CASE (Copy And Steal Everything, Copy And Share Everything), but in this situation the definition is
Copy And Selectively Edit. This means you can be inspired by ANYTHING on this card. What inspires you in this card to make it your own, what will you copy and what will you edit?
Here are some ideas of what you could be inspired by –
Theme – Winter or Christmas
Layout – The layers with the diagonal slope
Colours – Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party and Whisper White (or you could use colours that are similar, doesn’t have to be exactly the same)
Stamp set – Snow Place
Now, I have to make something clear…for years I have been a “Scrapbooker” and have always considered myself “Clean and Simple”
But it seems lately with cards I’m doing a bit more “Grunge to Antique” Now this is not always easy….I have also discovered I like to see what I can do with colour.
with this challenge I have playing with a few ideas…not sure what to do ..love the colours ….but …they complement each other but do they blend?
So I tried a few different ideas out, not happy with what I’d done but kept playing because I had this idea. Then, the other day while having a peak on Pinterest,
I found a card done similarly to the effect I wanted to achieve.
Here is what I came up with.
I inked the stamp with Pool Party and then sponged (using daubers) on the lower half with Coastal Cabana (Discontinued), working towards the bottom of stamp with Bermuda Bay
and adding Cherry Cobbler to the tip and some to highlight the center decoration.
I then gave a light mist with water and stamped onto Shimmery White paper.
What I learnt from what Hermine Koster did on her card (Pinterest) was to go around the edges with a marker to highlight them.
I tried using black but found it too dark so with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write, I very lightly went around the edges and white areas in the stamped image. Then with my Aqua Painter and watered down ink I added some splatters.
The sentiment was inked up with Pool Party and lower edges of the 3 “script” words touched with Cherry Cobbler.
I am really pleased with how this card has turned out..and my wonderful Husband (my GREATEST critic) has also agreed that he likes it too.
