Welcome Welcome Welcome to 2017 and our NEW Catlaogues!!
It's always exciting when we have new Occasions and Saleabration Catalogues and this year the projects, ideas and products are (as always) wonderfully creative and inspiring and just gorgeous!!
I love it all!
This week we are CASEing from the Party Animal Chapter - which features fantastic bright colours, and balloons and really fun greetings!
Well, I don't have any of the supplies featured in this chapter BUT that is not a problems with CASEing the Catty because we can be inspired by the stamp sets, the colours, ideas and the layout - which is what I have done using this lovely card on the right in the picture.
I do need some help though because for the life of me, I can't work out what has been used for the background on this card. Do you know?
For my background I've used the (new) Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder and then sponged with Crumb Cake lightly to highlight the shapes and texture. I've used the oh so gorgeous Builder Birdcage stamp set which has sooooo many possibilities in this 2 (or 3 or 4) step stamp set. You can choose which base, top, stand or combination of all three!!
I've then used the (new again!) watercolour pencils to colour onto the cages and background, and then used my aqua painter to drag the colour around to create a watercolour wash. I've also used my aqua painter to splatter colour too (going for the artistic look there!!)
And finally, did you notice that awesome scallop edge to the panel? What a cool idea, and one I've CASED from the catalogue sample - easily done with the layering scallop squares and using up all those pesky scraps lying around!! winner winner chicken dinner.
Ok, now enough of my wordy explanations!! Time for you to hop along to our next great project from the design team. I love our challenge blog - so many fabulous great ideas and projects from some super talented, creative and inspirational crafters!! What's not to love???
AND, in another NEW format for this year, our challenge will be hosted on our facebook group - you can use this link here. Now you can join in the fun without needing to have a blog, simply create your project, photograph it and add it to our facebook group!! Then you can be part of the fabulous fun community of CASEing the CATTY
