Card Challenge, Case Study 40
Case Study # 40 a lovely cade made by Sarah Martina Parker
And this is my study card, ala Vicki!
"Case Study Challenge" is a delightful site. I love to look back at older challenges. I took a break from cards last week, now I'm fresh and ready for this new challenge. I will also enter into "The Play Date Cafe, challenge #82" as they have provided my color scheme this week.
Craft card body. Scrap paper as background. Ivory lace and blue ribbon from S.A.S. Fabrics. Flowers assembled from items purchased from "Oriental Traders" (Petals, beads, pearl picks, butterfly, pearl headpin, button, hemp) Two lacey circles from Spellbinders and a handmade medallion.
My label, as often is, was created with Corel and printed. I used versamark, UTEE and a hot gun on my labels. This gives me the old but shiny effect I'm after.
For a new twist I used curled hemp cord beaded with Play Date Challenge colors to "study" the flourish from the card Sarah Martina Parker made.
I surely had fun and I think I'll re-label the card because it would make a nice Father's Day card for my very sweet husband. "Peace and chicken!" (Homer Simpson)
