Capturing symmetry butterfly stylee....


Wa-hooo for Friday Eve - albeit a soggy one here; a kayak would be a more appropriate form of transport around here this week!

But rainy days aside, let's start our day the CASE Study way!

Ready to study? I hope so! Feast your studying eyes on this lovely card by our muse for September, Torico:

Check out the original post of this card here.

Oooh I do love me some butterflies! I also love me the neutral kinda colour palette along with the pearls. I took that neutral palette a notch higher and tried my hand at stamping on fabric for my CASE Study this week:

Spread your Wings

Memento ink works a treat on this fabric butterfly and the symmetrical flourishes from Fancy Flourishes (Uniko Studio) are the perfect way to decorate a butterfly - capturing the symmetry of their delicately patterned wings. The heart flourish even makes for the sweetest of antennae too IMHO!

Now this is only my creative adventure from studying Torico's card. Be sure to see what creative direction the rest of the CASE Study DT took - you won't be disappointed!

Amy Wanford (That's me!)

And of course, if you do have the time, please study along with us and share the creative inspiration! :)

As always, thank you so much for popping by this little corner of Blogland today! :)

Catch ya later!
