Case Study Challenge #169 - "Oh My Moxie Fab" Tribute to Cath

Hi there, it's been a very busy weekend and I'm taking time out to post 2 cards for the Case Study Challenge. This month they are doing something different - the team is paying tribute to Cath Edvalson by choosing their favourite "Oh My Moxie Fab!" posts. This weeks inspiration is a real beauty and it has made me very inspired.

Here is my first card…

The stamp is from Hot Off The Press and this is the first time I've used it. It was one of those small, cheap stamps and it seemed to get lost in my stamp supplies. So this was the perfect occasion to christen it!
I used distress markers, colouring and blending directly on to the stamp, spritzing the stamp and the watercolour paper and then stamping. When it was dry I added the gold glitter on the feathers and around the border of the matt card.  I couldn't decide how to add a sentiment, so in the end I decided not to, because sometimes it's good to have a blank card.

Oh and  by the way, I wanted to say what a wonderful day I had on Friday, I was lucky enough to meet Chupa and some other talented and fun paper crafters, Cecilia, Lyndal and Michelle.
We all live in Melbourne and caught up for lunch, lots of laughs and crafty talk. Next time we may even make some cards together! Yay!!!
