Well, CASE Study has a couple of openings on their Design Team, so in this post I'm "trying out for the team" so to say. Wish me luck. Ok? *Warning* this is a long post!
We are to choose someone who's style inspires us, then use a piece of their work to inspire our own creation. I've chosen 3 Muses.
The first is Lucy Abrams. Lucy's work is usually clean and layered, whimsical, but always sweet. You'll often see that she adds something unexpected, too. You'll find her blog at Lucy's Cards.
This is the card that I've chosen as my inspiration.
And, my card.
My next card was inspired by Maile Belles. She is the ultimate in clean and simple, but oh-so-elegant. You can find her blog at Simply Stamped.
This is Maile's card that I chose as my inspiration.
And this is the card I created.
I chose to use the same die cutting technique that Maile used. But wanted to use a large pop of gold! The feather was embossed with gold embossing powder before die cutting the card front. I also cut the front a little smaller to leave a border of the black card base to frame it.
For my 3rd Muse, I chose Betsy Veldman. Betsy is so creative with layers, colors and die cutting. She always surprises me with the way she combines all of these elements...and it always looks wonderful! You can find her blog at Paper, Scissors and Superheroes.
I chose this card of Betsy's as my inspiration.
I was inspired by Betsy's use of die cutting and layering. But I wanted to go bold with my colors!
This is what I created.
Well, if you read all through this very LONG blog post...thank you.
A big "thank you" to Chupa, the owner of the CASE Study Challenge blog for your consideration!
