Hello again, Sweet readers! It’s Thanh here and I’m back with bringing you Part II of CASEing a fellow Sweet Stamp Shop DT Member. Did my previous post hit the nail in the head with regards to the topic of CASEing? I’d love to hear your thoughts and if you missed it the first time, head on over here to read Part I.
I’m going to focus Part II on modifying your projects from the original and at the end of this, you’ll be able to see what worked for me and what didn’t.
What I love about Christine’s card:
- Her main focal image is the most adorable Elephant Hearts by our illustrator and DT member Evelin Tee (enough said) – hehe
- The card size is not your typical A2
- Wood embellishments (my fave right now)
- Speech bubbles from Foxy and Stinky Skunk
Here’s my take on Christine’s card:
I don’t have star wood veneers on hand but I have plenty of heart ones so I converted my card into a loved one card. I also don’t have the Foxy set and substituted the speech bubble from Hedgehog Kiss. As this particular speech bubble has two thoughts going into one, I modified the speech bubble as seen below:
I inked up the speech bubble and then swiped away the one side and then stamped it on my white cardstock.
Then I just filled in the rest of the speech bubble with a black marker – it looks just like it was made for one thought/one person!
Sorry for the discoloured background of the above images – that’s the mat I use to protect my desk from getting Copic markers, different inks, and other marks! There’s nothing glamorous about the creation and execution of projects over here and there’s no shame – what ya’ll see is always the end product. 😉
Sometimes, my creative process is not always perfect. What you see above is not what I sometimes start with and you’ll see that I ended up modifying my card a quite a bit from Christine’s original. I wanted to use a red pattern paper, but found the pattern too distracting and ended up choosing my yellow pattern paper instead:
Here’s one last look to remind you of what my card turned out like and a close up view:
Thanks so much for hanging’ out with me today on the Sweet blog. Don’t forget to connect with us on our Facebook page. I’ll see you soon again!
