Look at this fabby card we've got for you for the August CASEplorations challenge! Its creator is Shalu of All By Heart Creations, and you can find her original post here.
There's plenty to go at here: those big bold stripes, colourful central image, bling, sentiment panel, shiny vertical strip.
What did I do? Well, for starters I loved those broad stripes, so they were definitely in. And the hit of orange. And the sentiment panel. Here's what happened:
The stripes were made by swooshing Chipped Sapphire Distress Paint across a card panel. The bird of paradise (from my new set called, er, Birds of Paradise which you'll be seeing more of next week. And it has coordinating dies.) was watercoloured with a mix of Distress Inks.
Looks like this guy is trying his best to get airborne again!
