Case Study Design Team Call

I can't remember when I first discovered Case Study, but it has always been one of my favourite challenges. Chupa has always had such a wonderful design team, with a great mixture of styles to inspire us. The concept of Casing a Muse is so much fun - I always look forward to finding out who the next next Muse will be and also  guessing which project we will be casing each week.

The other thing about this challenge is that it pushes us to do our best and step outside our comfort zone.

A few designers have recently departed Case Study, so there is a designer call. Chupa has asked applicants to create a craft project inspired by our personal Muse. So here goes... I have cased an amazingly beautiful card by the incredibly talented Jill Foster.

                                                              This is Jill's Card

                                                              And here is my card

I have used Simon Says Flower Friend stamps and dies for the flowers and sentiment.
The coloured panel is watercolour paper. I painted it with gesso and then used gelatos swiped with wet wipes.

 I'm entering this in the Papercrafts Connection April challenge - Get Well - because everyone needs hugs when they're unwell!

I"m also entering this in the Stamplorations April Challenge, because I have used my favourite techniques - watercolour with gelatos and distress inks.
