Catalina Wreath and Twinkling H20s

Hi everyone,

This week I wanted to play along with the current CASE Study Challenge.  This week’s muse is Angeline Yong and you can see her original card on the CASE Study blog here.  I kept the basic layout of the inspiration card the same but used the Memory Box Catalina Wreath Die instead of the stamping.  I cut this out of black card and then used some Twinkling H20s to give the wreath both colour and shimmer (these are lovely shimmery water colour paints that come in cute little plastic jars).  I used a corrugated cardboard bird by Jillibean soup and added a twine wing and a pearl.  The kraft card was stamped with a woodgrain background stamp using versamark ink for a tone on tone look and the sentiment was stamped in black archival ink.

After I posted this – I realised I had actually CASED the second card Angeline made  – oh well 🙂  I had looked at the card and then was  thinking about ideas when I was settling my youngest boy/working on the strategies that the sleep help centre had given us to try and get him to stay in bed – lots of stickers and  praise and lots of ‘catching’ him staying in bed, so my brain must have been in a muddle.

Thanks for stopping by,

Kristy.
