Happy Friday Eve! Can't quite believe my first week back at school is nearly over already (guess it helps that I didn't actually have any students until Wednesday!)
So let's celebrate that weekend coming with a shiny new CASE study:
Julie Lacey. I love her style: the way she layers papers and dares to leave images un-coloured has me admiring her creations so much. Wish I could resist that urge to colour but alas, the kid in me just won't let me :)
Check out this super duper card of Julie's up for CASEing this week:
You can check out the original post of this card here!
Ooooh so much to admire! The thing that grabbed me the most was the idea of that colour combo. Blue and Orange are complimentary colours on the colour wheel (they're opposite each other) which means that this was a match made in Heaven when it comes to a colour combo that works (as they say, opposites attract *wink*)
I took the colour combo, the use of a die-cut shape and a flower along with my own CAS twist to come up with this card:
Have to 'fess up that the kraft circular frame was just sittin' on my desk from a previous project but I kinda like how it makes you focus on that silhouette a bit more. I literally used it 'just because' it was there (see what I did there? 'just because'...as in the sentiment?! sorry - poor humour I know!) In fact, I couldn't really imagine the card without it now!
So here's my CAS take on this week's CASE study, how about yours? We'd love for you to join in the inky fun with us! This week, one randomly selected peep will win a $15 GC for Whimsie Doodles too!
Oooh and if you need a good dose of inspiration to kick your mojo into gear, or you just wanna check out some amazing creations then be sure to visit the rest of the CASE study DT
