CASE Study Challenge #67

This week at CASE Study, is sadly the last week with the amazing Kryssi Ng... I had such a good time, honestly. Who wouldn't have?? Kryssi has this rare talent, that makes any stamp in her hands turn into pure magic. Delight.
I admire her skills of putting together a perfect composition, with every element on her card being just where it should be... like on this week's inspiration below, that is in my top five most favourite cards of her. Evah.

Okay, so I DO love this flower stamp. A LOT. I should really get it :)
BUT, it's that exquisite play of elements, of blank and stamped spaces, that makes the card so well balanced and pleasing to the eye. Then, there's the colours. You know how much I LOVE teal...

With that being said, I knew that I'm going to shamelessly CASE this design as it is. Same layout, just different stamps and a bit tweaked idea... I would have changed nothing at all, but I wanted to throw in a little bit from myself as well :)


Supplies: cardstock: brown, white; stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps (Backgrounds By Design 4), WPlus9 (Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, Love Birds), Waltzingmouse Stamps (Big Day Additions); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Lady Bug), Versa Magic (Turquoise Gem); pearls: Flourish with a Bling; Spica pen

As you can see, I finally dove in and got some fabulous WPlus9 stamps. I'm so happy! My wish list is much, much longer, but I'm sure I'll get there one day, one step at a time... :)
I paired the birdie and leaves, with the sentiment from Waltzingmouse, and the starry background from AnnaBelle. I covered the leaves with Spica pen, but the brute is damn hard to photograph. They shimmer most beautifully in real life!

I used the colours below, from CTD169. This must be one of my favourite combos from them.

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