CASE Yourself

CASE Study are still celebrating their second anniversary.  We've CASEd a design team member, we've CASEd another challenge player, and this week we have to CASE ourselves.  I'm still in London mode so I decided to CASE this one-layer monochromatic card.



This version has three layers, but I've kept the monochromatic theme, this time sepia, and used the same stamp set.  I masked a broad stripe across the panel and dusted Walnut Distress Ink with my Inkylicious duster brushes, then stamped various images onto the masked panel.  Some of the images are first-generation stamped, and some are second or third.  The Routemaster bus was stamped in Walnut Distress Ink and then watercoloured with more Walnut, cut out and mounted onto foam pads.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark Onyx Black.



I'm also entering it into Simon Says Anything Goes.

Stamps: Papermania Urban Stamps - Portobello Road.

Got to dash - hubby's cooking paella and it's nearly ready!

    1. Right over my head - I must be one of the few people not to have read any of the books, or seen the films, but I did visit the shop where he bought his wand - apparently.

  12. Congrats on the CASE Study win - sorry about the Harry Potter reference - it's a purple double (triple?) decker bus that carreens through London at night - I'm sure it's the tilted landmarks in the background that made me think of it. So cool!
