A balloon with a pop...


Oh hooray for Friday-Eve! It's been a short week with students, but I like to ease myself back into the swing of things after the long summer break :)

So nothing new here on the blogeroo this Friday-Eve, let's celebrate with a CASE Study!

But wait! It's September! We have a new muse to admire and CASE for this month and I'm so happy to say it's the super talented Torico! 

Check out this fun card of Torico's up for studying this week:

Check out the original post of this card here.

We were fortunate enough to get our inky digi mitts on some of Torico's fabulous digis. I fell in love with this cute robot image and got studying:


I used Torico's basic layout and jiggled a few elements around. The circle was die-cut around the robot but I ensured the balloon stayed out of the die for extra interest - I made the balloon 'pop' with colour rather than noise. And for more interest, I couldn't resist using the cogs from the set Time (Uniko Studio) kinda fitting in the whole robotic/mechanic theme methinks.

Need more inspiration? Then check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT created for your viewing pleasure:

Amy Wanford (That's me!)

 Now come and ink (or digi) along with us! Take any inspiring element from Torico's card and create a project (you're not limited to just cards either!) 

Thanks so much for stopping by here today - I always appreciate your visits! :)

Catch ya later!
