CASE Study Challenge #66

Hi and happy Thursday, inky peeps!
I'm sad to say, that we're saying goodbye this week to Julie Smith, at CASE Study... Julie is my dear blogging buddy and I will miss the weekly inspiration from her!
The good news is, though, that her shoes are filled in with an absolutely amazing artist, that you're sure to welcome with joy, to our little Team... Julie Lacey!!
Julie has been our Muse and she's also been a fan of our challenges, so it was only fitting to invite her in! :)

Our inspiration this month, comes from the talented Kryssi Ng, and I chose this card this time around... oh my golly, isn't it incredible??

I picked this one partly to challenge myself in inking yet again :)
I love this rich, perfect gradient, but I decided on less saturated colours, so that if I make a mistake, it wouldn't be so visible... fortunately no mistakes were done!

I inked up some of my new "babies" for this card, that I won in the previous month's Hero Arts contest. I couldn't wait to do so!!
I sponged the paper first, overstamped with the woodgrain, and then created the "meadow" - I had to stamp the flowers twice. Lastly, I coloured the centers with the yellow Copic marker (Y15).


Supplies: cardstock: Canson (grey, red), American Crafts (black), white; stamps: Hero Arts (Cuckoo, Wild Flowers, Designer Woodgrain); ink: Memento (London Fog), VersaFine (Onyx Black), Versa Color (Narcissus), Fabrico (Lemon Yellow); buttons; string; banner die: MFT Die-Namics; yellow Copic; staple

I combined Card Patterns sketch 141, with CTD168...

Please visit my sweet and talented DT at their blogs, and check out what they whipped up with this week's inspiration!
