CASE Study #193 - Hope

 Happy Thursday!  Time for a new CASE Study Challenge!  It's the last Thursday this month so it's your last chance to play along with our muse Wida Miller from Beachorado!   I really enjoyed CASE'ing her this month!  I was really struck with Wida's ability to balance the clean and detailed parts of her designs.  Her mix of dies, stamps and embellishments gave me a fun and unique way to approach products.   

Just look what she has for us this week.  Lots of things that I love on this one that make it unusual and interesting.  The different sized sequins, the mix of flowers with the unexpected arrows, the top layer just slightly offset at an angle.   I picked up on the pop of color from the sentiment.  Instead of layering the die cut on top of the stamped image I cut mine out and let the second layer peek through.   Instead of the scatter of different sized sequins I used buttons and enamel dots.    I layered on a few die cuts - instead of words I used images.    What do you see that inspires you?  Just focus on the things you love and just run with them.
Need a little more inspiration or just curious to see the inspiration transformed into all sorts of creations from fussy to CAS?  Just click on the CASE DT member names here to jump to their blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
