Happy Wishes 4 U – CASE Study #137

Hi everyone,

I am back to playing along with the CASE Study Challenge #137 for this week after a few busy weeks, and I was inspired by the rainbow of colours in the inspiration card.  JJ’s interactive card is very cool and well worth checking out at the CASE Study blog.  For my card though I have gone with a different look but still with the bright colours.  I have stuck some foil tape sheet onto a piece of white card and die cut the ornamental die by Sizzix.  I embossed it using one of the Tim Holtx Texture Fades – Riveted Metal and then applied drops of different colours of alcohol inks.  I dabbed the inks a little but didn’t end up using any blending solution to blend the colours as I just wanted to see what would happen but I was still really happy with the results.  I wanted the edge of the die cut to stand out a bit more against my black card base so applied some white paint using my finger.  I also added a little white paint to the metal flower.  When the paint was dry I created the sentiment with some foam thickers and alpha stickers, and assembled the card.  I had fun making this one which is always good!

If you have any questions just leave me a comment and I will get back to you 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,
