I can't believe I'm posting again so soon, but I really don't want to miss the challenge over at the CASE Study challenge blog.
I've been following this blog for a couple of months, and absolutely love what they do, but haven't had the nerve to join in until now.
Instead of a picture for inspiration, they have a monthly guest designer who submits a card for you to CASE (CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything), which is fabulous for me.
This is the card for this week:
With this card, I found the simplicity of the shapes very attractive. I liked the fact that the papers in each shape are different, but the style and colour tone is the same.
So I set about making my own card, and here it is:
I framed each one with a square in the same colour and added the 'Thinking of you' sentiment, which is in the same set. I was very pleased with the result. It's quite a departure for me, no ribbon, candi etc, just taking card making right back to basics. In the end I felt as if I'd been to an art class, and learned a lot, without even leaving my own desk. How cool is that? So, thankyou CASE study, you've made my day!
Thanks for looking in today, peeps, and I'd really appreciate your comments. Have you had any formal art training? Do you think it makes a difference to your creative side? I'd love to know what you think.
