Love

......that's what that Chinese character on my card means.

For this week's CASE Study, Aga's last, here is her card:


I knew immediately that I wanted to use this new (to me) Hero Arts stamp and my new shaded lilac distress ink, one of the spring limited colors.  I did not attempt the paint splattering, but I used a tiny bit of an old, old paper (just above my scallops) which looks kind of splotchy.......


supplies: white cardstock, dps from an ancient pad from Michael's called "Windswept", Hero Arts CG434 Floral Blossoms, shaded lilac distress ink and Stampology onyx for sentiment, Martha Stewart doily border punch

The lilac ink and punched edge paper are photographing more blue than lavender, but I like this periwinkle effect just as well.

I'd like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge.

As always your card is perfection! I just love how you switched up the elements in this gorgeous CASE!

I don't blame you a bit for wanting to splatter - neither do I! Can't stand messes. But, this card is a real gem - amazing design and colors. What's not to "love" in any language!

Gorgeous! Love the colours

That lilac color is so pretty & I love how you paired it up with those other patterns/colors. I haven't had too much success with spraying & splattering; never looks the way I want it to.

Beautiful card and colors. So behind on commenting. Busy in the yard and gardens and not so much in my studio. Sorry to read about Lily Pad this am.

Elizabeth Allan said...

These particular shades of color make me swoon Lin. Glad you stamped your card with the Chinese love symbol because this card is filled with it!

Robin K. said...

I wondered what that symbol meant -I recently acquired that set too:) I love how you used the strips in your design and that gorgeous new distress ink color!!!

Helen L said...

"Love" your card, even better than your inspiration piece :-)

Kara Lynne said...

Love how you cut out the flowers and the use of spattered print paper is perfect!

That is some fabulous fussy cutting! I love the mix of purples and the way you incorporated the "splatter". Thanks for joining us this week at CASE Study!
