Time Out CASE ...

Back again for my second post of the day!

This time my card has more colours.  My inspiration for this card is from the challenge at TIME OUT challenges where the criteria is to CASE a beautiful card created by Kim Makortoff - check out Kim's blog for some inspiring projects. See below for Kim's card.

I took her design and created my own take - using the layout and flowers this is my version:

I've stamped and masked the flowers before water colouring them using distress inks I've mounted the panel using some foam adhesive just to create some added dimension to the card.

This is Kim's card:

I used:

STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches
Distress Inks - Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint
Clearly Besotted Many Messages
Versafine Onyx Black ink

As I have used STAMPloration stamps I am also going to link up to the Anything Goes ongoing challenge over on their blog.
