Happy Thursday! Is it just me or is time flying lately? I guess with the kids home I'm in demand! What's for lunch? What's for dinner? Where's my shirt? You know the drill! Glad for my crafty time - just for ME! HAHA!!! Stay away from mom when she's "in the zone"!! LOL!!!
It's Thursday and you know what that means right? YAYY! A new challenge at CASE Study! AND.. it's a new month... so we have a new muse. It's Pamela Ho from MIAO A Design Blog. You'll know her from some of her DT assignments as well like Mama Elephant and Paper Smooches. Chupa has some fun planned for you this month - she picked some great layouts including this one. How do you play CASE? Well you copy and share everything of course! So all you need to do is study the design, look for the things you like, and make them your own. What do you love? The layout? The pop of hot pink on black? The die cuts? The sprinkle of Bling?
Me? I focused on the pop of color coming through the die cut number "24" (my fave TV show lately too by the way! GO JACK!) Ok... try to contain yourself here girl.... ummm... Right! Back to the colors. I turned the numbers into some die cut fish. First I die cut the fishies on kraft, then I taped that on top of some cream paper with repositionable tape. I inked up the fish and stamped them through the open "windows". When I adhered it all together onto the card base I used adhesive foam tape to give some depth to the window.
To get the different colors on the fish I taped off the section I didn't want inked, inked them up, removed the tape, stamped the image. Then cleaned the stamp, taped off the second half and did the same thing. To line them up perfectly I used a stamp a ma jig. I added some google eyes to up the fun factor and as a substitute to the bling on the original card.
