Well I hope you're ready for a party. What for you ask? Well, true, it's Friday-Eve and that's always a reason to celebrate but it's also the challenge blog, CASE Study's 4th anniversary! I'm so honoured to have been there from the start of CASE Study all those years ago. It only seems like yesterday that Iwona (Chupa) sent me an email explaining her concept and me accepting her invitation without hesitation. :)
I'm so happy to be able to join in the festivities as we have a corker of a blog hop chock-full of inspiration. Be sure to hop along and comment along the way to win some awesome prizes from our sponsors:
You should have hippety hopped across here from Julie Smith. If you haven't or you're lost, here's the order you should be following. :)
Now as you may know, my recent career change has meant I'd recently taken a little break from CASE Study. However, from today I am b.a.c.k.! Yup, I might be crazy but I'm jumping back on board and will hopefully (fingers crossed!) be back to my regular Friday-Eve CASE Study blog posts.
So, onto today's card. This card is a CASE of sorts from my recent trip to IKEA. No, I didn't purchase a raskog - I simply don't have room! However I do often find myself spending a large amount of time in the art section. Two art pieces caught my eye:
These birds have a map detail on them. I love that idea!
And from that moment, I had the idea to combine the two and create my own bird embellishment with a typewriter font.
- I addd texture to my background by splattering it with Distress Ink mixed with water and stencilling parts of a distressed-style stencil with embossing paste.
- This concept works for so many occasions. Simply type any adjectives relating to the occasion. No typewriter? No problemo! Simply use a typewriter-style font on your computer.
- The acetate helps to ground the bird whilst the positioning of the stars helps the eyes to frame the bird.
