I am playing along with CASE Study again this week and had some fun using up another one of the Distress Paint tag backgrounds that I made. I took inspiration from the colours Julie Ebersole used on her card and also the butterfly (You can see the current Case Study blog challenge here). The main technique for the card is basically to use the negative from your die cut. This is a great way to use your die cuts for a different look and seems to have become a more popular technique with more cards around that feature it. I created the background behind the white frame by diluting some Sunshine Yellow Dylusions Ink Spray and then painting onto the card base.
Well I am off to keep working on the projects for the upcoming In-Store Weekend Workshop at Southern Stationery. Over the next couple weeks or so there will be sneak peaks of the projects on the Stefs Paper Crafts blog.
