CASE study #98

Monday is over. Whew! Working from home AND tending to the children makes for a tiresome day! I was sure to rob some time this evening in my craft room and let them play quietly in there with me. It was our relaxation and "downtime".

This weeks CASE study is this adorable card by the monthly muse.

Wouldn't you love to have a card like that in your repetoire?! It's so pretty. I love the soft, warm colors and the happy feel. The flowers on that fence are so inviting.

I took my inspiration from the pattern masked into a circle in the background. I first thought of my woodgrain stamps (can't get enough!) and when I pulled that set out, I was reminded of my Chicken Wire stamp from PTI. Chicken wire = even better.

Supplies List:
PaperTrey Ink - On the Farm and Background Basics: Farm & Barn stamp sets;
Close To My Heart - Cocoa ink, Chocolate ink, Grey Wool ink, wooden buttons,
kraft hemp, cranberry ribbon,foundry pin, bamboo cardstock
Doodlebug Designs - red twine
BoBunny - dotted cardstock

I used my Coluzzle template to cut a circle out of a post-it note and used the negative to mask the edges of a circle. I then stamped my chicken wire in grey wool over the un-masked area. Next, the rooster was stamped in cocoa ink twice to make the image darker. Cranberry stamped circle accent and cocoa stamped checkerboard pattern. Added my accents and ribbon and voila! Easy - peasy.
