CASE-ing Perfection...


Woop woop for Friday-Eve! It's been a super short week with Bank Holiday Monday, but that doesn't mean I'm still not happy to see the end of the week :)

Ready to knuckle down to another fabulous CASE Study? I hope so!

As you know one of my stamping crushes is our muse this week in the form of Agnieszka Malyszek. Check out this beauty of Aga's up for studying this week:

Check the original post of this card here.

I'm not ashamed to say that I drool over everything Aga creates with her magical inky fingers. I'm also not ashamed to admit that I shamelessly CASEd this beauty down to a 'T'...after all, who am I to mess with perfection? *wink*

I am here for you

The flowers and leaves have been stamped using a simple masking technique. I did debate on using a different colour scheme (Aga has cleverly used the opposite colours of the colour wheel) but I just couldn't stamp those beautiful flowers from Beautiful Spring in any other colour, and that then dictated the bottom panel of the card to be green.

Now it's clear to see how I was inspired by Aga's card, but please check out what the rest of the super CASE Study DT inked up for your viewing pleasure:

Amy Wanford (You're here!)

I hope you can find time to ink along with us this week!

If I don't see you beforehand, have a fabulous weekend! Mine is going to be a very inky one: my guy is away on a stag do (I don't even want to know what they're going to get up to - so long as he makes it home in one piece!) so I've got lots of 'me' time to occupy :)

Catch ya later!

Fabulous take on the CASE, I tried, but.... fun to see you ink up Karen's set... I used a different sentiment today, but they're all fun.
