W&W CAS Freestyle Collage

This card is for another of Winnie & Walter's Birthday Celebration challenges, this time Gayatri's CAS Freestyle Collage.  I adore this style but don't have the faintest idea how to go about achieving it, so I figure the first step is to make a stab at it.  Here's what I came up with:

W&W CAS Freestyle Collage challenge

Most of my Winnie &  Walter stamps are the sentiment ones with the big words, and I have very few that have other motifs, so I'm using the other flower  from their Big, Bold, and the Extras set, along with the big happy from the Big, the Bold and the Happy stamped and fussy-cut.   I still love my washi tapes, so a selection of those came into play, in pink, green, and grey, and I also added a partial doily die-cut and some pink sequins to the mix.  

I would love some constructive criticism for this card, maybe even a better explanation of what freestyle collage means.......

As always, thanks for visiting today!

  4. This is such a wonderful card, Lin! Love your design and the gorgeous mix of washi tape! Such a beautiful mix of elements. I'd never heard of this style before so had to go look at Gayatri's cards - as Cindy said, you nailed it!
