Oh CASE Study, how I missed you!! Two weeks in a row I didn't participate, and it was the first time I ever missed a challenge at all. I was super bummed, especially that the Muses, as well as their inspiration cards are always my absolute favourites! Heyyy, I'm choosing them myself after all, LOL
I'm happily back this week, finally being able to take a plunge into the delightful crafty world of Jen Rzasa, our January Muse. I find the card below so mesmerizing, with the luscious damask, peeking out of the negative die-cut butterflies.
I knew that I wanted to do some negative die cutting too, upon choosing the card above. I didn't have a suitable butterfly die, that would be big enough and solid, so instead I went for the window design and I'm very glad I did :)
Supplies: cardstock: white; paper: Authentique (Gathering); stamps: Papertrey Ink (Love Lives Here - with die); ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa); Spellbinders Nestabilities Squares/Circles; baker's twine
I die cut the PTI heart 'tag' first, and matted it with a wee bigger circle , cut with the Nesties, to help it stand out against the busy background. I really like this masculine Valentine card with a non-traditional twist.
I was inspired by the colours of the RCC35 challenge, and I'm also entering this card into the Die Cutting Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, as well as the Valentine challenge in A Passion For Papertrey.
Please visit my sweet and talented DT at their blogs, and check out what they whipped up with this week's inspiration! Did you see that we've got a new Teamie?? Christina joined us last week, I'm so thrilled!
