We are each CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) one of Bibi’s designs today. It was a hard decision to make as she has so many gorgeous projects on her blog, but this one caught my eye:

I love the look of watercoloured cards, and despite being a novice at it, I’ve been itching to try out a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue that is perfect for this technique – the Merry Mice Stamp Set. I liked Bibi’s use of a neutral coloured card base, the random splatters of ink over the background, and the way the twine is held in place by the little notches, so my card has similar elements too.

My card base is Kraft cardstock and my splatters are made by flicking the tip of my gold Wink of Stella glitter brush. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen a different colour for this little guy’s jumper as it’s a bit too close to the green leaves of the branch. But I’m sure I’ll be colouring him again – he is SO CUTE!!!

To continue along the hop, select the person next on the list after me, Gail Davidson, to see all the marvellous creations from Bibi and the rest of the Crazy Crafters. But before you go, if you like my design, I’d love it if you could take the time to leave a comment to let me know!

Thanks for stopping by today. Portrait w textYou Can Make It
