Glossy flowers...


Happy Friday-Eve! Let's kick off the super-long Bank Holiday weekend and Diamond Jubilee celebrations early with a real gem of a CASE Study:

It's Aga's final week with us as our fabulous muse. I'm sure you all know that I've seriously loved having her on board with us! I hope you'll join us for her last week with this beauty:

Check out the original post of this card here!

I was totally inspired by that gorgeous turquoise flower, the amazing misting and Aga's use of my favourite papers from Basic Grey.

hello friend

As a nod to Aga's fabulous style, I applied a coat of Glossy Accents over the flowers :)

Hello Friend Close

Note to self: if I can't avoid the temptation of touching the Glossy Accents before it's dry, then next time simply stamp over the flowers again in clear ink and emboss with clear powder! 

I'm not sure if you can see my splatters but I cheated! I used the splatter-phobe stamp (Well that's what I call it anyways!) from Typically Teen (The Craft's Meow) and stamped once on scrap before stamping on the card for a more subtle effect.

We really hope you can join in the inky fun with us this week! Be sure to check out the beauties that the rest of the CASE Study DT inked up for ya:

Love the glossy accents on the stamped image!

Jennifer Rzasa said...

Oh my gosh....I also tempt myself to touch the glossy accents! I "check to see if it's dry," and end up with a big fingerprint :( I should either try your alternate method, or learn some patience! grrr

Love this card! A perfect final tribute to Aga.
