More Homework and Casing Jennifer Mcguire

Just a quick post, because housework beckons! I decided to make another card, whilst I was in the mood, given my lack of mojo over the last week!
So this card is homework for the Stretch your Stamps 2 class and was also inspired by Jennifer Mcguire's beautiful watercolour card in the Case Study 4th Anniversary blog hop.

I stamped and white embossed the image on thick vellum and then used inktense watercolour pencils and copics to colour on the reverse side. Then I fussy cut and glued the image on the card base. I was really surprised and happy the glue didn't show! The sentiment is stamped directly on the card - had to convince my self to use blue instead of black! I used an embossing folder to make a border at the bottom, added some twine and sequins and I was nearly done. The final touch was to add Wink of Stella to the flowers for some extra shine!


  1. just a stunning card and in my fav colours....well done!

  2. Every bit as wonderful as the muse, gorgeous coloring!

  3. And another gorgeous card! Beautiful colouring!

  4. So beautiful! Love your watercoloring! Thanks for joining us this week at CASE Study!

  5. Wow! You took on a challenge by casing Jennifer! LOL! Actually, this is one I want to try casing, too- it is gorgeous! You did a fantastic job with this card- love your version of it, stamping on vellum. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a bit of sweetness!
