CASEplorations with Elina Stromberg

Hi peeps, here we are with a new CASEplorations challenge, and our muse this month is Elina Stromberg with this gorgeous card:

These are the elements that I took:
the coloured background, paler in the centre; subtle background stamping; strong focal image; black mat; black diecut sentiment.  And this is what happened:

I stamped the Large Platform Shoe onto mixed media paper, sloshed Distress Inks around it, then watercoloured the shoe with Fossilized Amber and Ground Espresso.  Reminds me of another craze for antique-leather shoes ;)  Stamped the large flower from Groovy Shoes, and diecut the sentiments using the new CUTplorations Happy and Birthday.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see how the rest of the Design Team CASEd Elina's card, and for details on how to play along.


  1. Strong focal image? Ah, yep! Groovy!

  2. LOVE the strong focal area! So gorgeous Shirley!

  3. Would have never occurred to me to use that image for the CASE - LOVE it!

  4. I just do love the way you color!

  5. Ooohhhh, I like 'what happened'! Super cool!

  6. What a fantastic contrast, Shirley ... the bold shoe and sentiment against the delicate background florals ... fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)
