Jacqueline has her very own style which I am always aspiring to reach. She has a wonderful ability to put stamps together and make them a true work of art and she is so talented using distress inks. Her work is so outstanding that she doesn't need to use lots of embellishments like many of us do; her compostions can always stand by themselves with little needing to be added, just an occasional butterfly or bird. In studying her card, I couldn't think of anyting I'd do to improve it, so I decided to CASE it, just changing up the stamps used and brightening the colors a bit.
Like Jacqueline, I started with a white panel. I stamped the Music Background using antique linen distress ink, and then smeared some broken china distress ink on a large acrylic block, spritzed it with lots of water, and then stamped it over the music. After that had dried, I inked my Garden Bouquet with markers, spritzed it with water and then stamped - I LOVE the watercolor look this gives. After that had dried thoroughly, I overstamped my sentiment, from the same set that Jacqueline used. Lastly I framed the panel in pink, mounted it on a white card, and then just added some tiny butterflies and some sparkly gems.
