This was the lovely card, by Windy Robinson, to CASE.
I cased Windy's card's basic design and the whole "flow" of movement, which on her card, is the rhinestone flourish.
This card presented quite a challenge for me to case. I couldn't really think of anything to do, but I came up with this card.
And this card required quite a bit of work. I used a new Martha Stewart punch my sister gave me for Christmas. (thats what the leaves are).
I punched lots and lots of leaves, then stamped each of them using watercolors instead of ink. Then I arranged and adhered the leaves, adhering some flat to the card, and others with foam tape to add some dimension.
After most of the leaves were adhered, I painted some watercolors onto a panel of cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it to the card. (and did some final trimming). I also added some more leaves were I thought there should be a couple more.
Then I stamped, trimmed, and adhered the sentiment and added a gem.
I'll be back tomorrow (Lord-willing!) with my entries for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge.
