CASE Study #130

Hi everyone,

I can’t believe we are in March already! Just in case you have been wondering where I have been – we bought a new (second hand) car last week, my daughter was unwell, we are still re-arranging our house and then my camera cord went AWOL!  However I was able to go to a Finnabair workshop over the weekend and it was great to learn some new things.  I plan to post my layout later in the week (She has said this is ok – her style of  teaching meant that although everyone’s layouts incorporated the same techniques they all ended up different as it wasn’t the kind of class where everyone puts exactly the same papers and embellishments in exactly the same place – I will talk about it more in my next post.)

Today’s card is the one I made to play along with the current CASE Study Challenge.  This week is the last week with Teri Anderson as the muse (you can check out the CASE Study blog here).  When I saw the basic layout of the card I decided I wanted to use one of the tags I made last week using the new distress paints (you can see all the tag backgrounds I made in this post).  I teamed up my tag with some patterned papers and stickers from the SNAP life collection by Simple Stories, We R Memory Keepers Twine, a big paper clip and a couple of washi tapes.  I kept the idea of the pocket which you can see the paper clip is tucked into but didn’t add anything in it.  I really enjoyed making a graphic style card which is something I don’t tend to do but I love when I see other peoples card.

Hope you had a great long weekend (if you are in WA) and thanks for stopping by.

    • Hi Teneale,
      I described the basic method in my post about the distress tag backgrounds. I applied some different colours of distress paint to my kraft sheet and for this tag just swiped it through the paints letting them mix together. I may have given it a tiny bit of a spritz of water and then heated it with the heat gun. This tag has more of a smeared look than some of the other ones I made. Hope that helps. 🙂 Really it is just about playing until you get the look you want.

  1. oh lOVE that tag! I’m a sucker for anything stationery/office supply. Thanks for playing with us over on CASE STudy 🙂
