Hello there, today I am taking part in a blog hop to celebrate Christine's Birthday. Christine is the owner of Create A Smile Stamps and is an amazing designer and card maker. She is also a lovely person too! The design teams were kindly contacted by fellow teamie Anni, to ask if we would like to celebrate Christine's birthday, so of course I said yes. The idea of the hop is to CASE one of Christine's cards and make a new birthday card for her. Here is what I did:
I started off by stamping the images from the Botanical Love stamp set with Versamark ink on to some TH Watercolor Cardstock. I then applied WOW! Bright White embossing powder to these and heat set. The images were coloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, water and a paint brush.
Once dried, the panel was added to a white A2 card base. The sentiment, from the Make A Wish set, was stamped with Versamark on to a piece of black cardstock and heat with the same embossing powder. This was added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few enamel dots and some clear WOS to the flowers.
Here is Christine's original card for you to compare. I loved the design as soon as I saw it. I loved the artsy watecrcolour, the colours and the elegance of it. I especially liked the pop of black on the sentiment piece. For my card, I kept the original design because I loved it so much, however, the overall design of mine is more on the clean and simple side (which I cannot help but doing!). The colours I used were a lot brighter and I think this makes it more CAS too. I hope Christine likes it though!
