CASE-ing Heather

Wow!  Challenges, challenges and more challenges!  I'm having a lot of fun working my way through all of Flourishes birthday celebration.  Heather is the one who introduced me to Flourishes.  We met when she came into the store where I work and we had a chance to visit for a bit.  Oh, she's also the one who started me using Copic Markers.  I think her work is beautiful so having a chance to CASE her design was a treat.

As you can see, I changed up the colors for mine.  I didn't have any pastel paper so I made mine using Paper Vellum and sponging the edges with ink.  Since it was covered with the other card stock, I didn't have to ink the whole thing.  It gave just the right hint of blue.  It was fun to go through my supplies and find something that I could substitute for the different items she used.

To see more of Heather's beautiful work, click HERE or on the image below.  It's the design I CASE-d.  You can also find her at her blog; Simply Handmade by Heather.  She truly inspires me.

And, here is my take on Heather's beautiful card.

Stamp Sets:  Sweet Nature and Anemones (Flourishes); Inks:  Marina Mist and Early Espresso (Stampin' Up!), Copic Markers YG 11, YG 13, YG17, B00, B02, B05; Card Stock:  Classic White (Flourishes), Paper Vellum and Polka Dot Parade (Stampin' Up!); Accessories :& Tools:  Adorning Accents Edgelits and Early Espresso Baker's Twine (Stampin' Up!), blue button

My blue flower needs deeper color but for a novice, at least I stayed inside the lines!  :-)  Come back tomorrow for a design for the next challenge on Flourishes.

Until next time . . . happy creating!
