I don't even know why I posted that card for the CAS-ual Friday challenge yesterday! I thought I liked it but after I blogged it I was highly disappointed with whatever it was I was trying to do! Just too many patterned papers I think, it simply did not look CAS to me and the stamped image got completely lost in the busyness of the patterned paper!
So, I am going to try it again, and this time I used a fabulous digital stamp of a deer by Pink Cat Studio (this is all Emily and Tiffany's doing, they don't know it, but it is! Go and take a look at their blogs and the posts they have showcasing these awesome stamps/digis!).
I pretty much stuck to the sketch that Laura provided:
Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Neenah Solar White; Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black; Lilac Posies; Pear Tart); Copic Markers
Stamps: Pink Cat Studio; PTI (Flower Fusion 2 & 3); MFT (sentiment from Flower Girl); Hero Arts (CL137)
Other: Corner Rounder; Fiskars Border Punch; Glossy Accents
I really liked how this turned out and I love the bright fun colours. Love those PTI flowers, you can easily mix and match between sets. I created the sentiment by partially stamping a sentiment from an MFT set and then creating the deer-ly using a Hero Arts alphabet stamp.
Ok, now I feel better!!!
