CASE Study Challenge #111

How is it that it's October already?? With a first Thursday of the month a new Muse comes to CASE Study and I'm incredibly pleased to announce, that it's Julia Stainton!!
I've been a fan of her eclectic, free-flowing style for a long time, and I can't wait to see what our players do with the inspiration :)

How gorgeous is Julia's card above! I'm drawn to it partly because if the beautifully executed resist technique, and although I went for a less artsy look and used a good ole' cardstock instead of canvas, it's still there on my inspired card. The rest is pretty much closely followed as well. Just because I {heart} that card a lot :)

I used the light pink cardstock for the base of my design, clear embossed the Glitz Design frame on it, sponged over with two shades of distress inks and distressed the edges.
I stamped the clock from TCM Vintage Clocks (brand new stamp set!), and the bit of the sentiment ("all the time") at the bottom. The rest of the sentiment forms the stamp from Inspired By Audrey (also from TCM), stamped in the die cut banner.
The cluster of embellishments consist of two feathers, die cut with Jewel Fantasies Shapeabilities, some mulberry flowers, coloured twine and Kaisercraft pearls.

I happened to follow the colour palette of cQc#157... :)
