Time Out #4 and CASE Study #189

Happy Tuesday, All

I was out of town yesterday so I didn't get to participate in the Online Card Class - Watercolor, and I'm anxious to get started. Before I do, I have a couple of cards for challenges ending shortly.  First up is CASE Study.

This is Wida's lovely card and I'm not sure I did it justice.  I always feel that way when I force an idea.

I used a NBUS border stamp from The Alley Way in a variety of Hero Arts inks.  The sentiment is also from HA that I did a little surgery on so I could stack the words.

The next card I like a whole lot better.  The challenge at Time Out was to CASE Virginia Lu's card.

I was inspired by the patterned paper and the large element nested on jute.  This is a NBUS butterfly die from Memory Box. The outline is cut in black and embossed with black sparkle and the solid part is cut from aqua vellum so there's a sheerness to it.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to get some lunch and then watch the class videos.  The next cards you see will be homework.


  1. Wow! Nice job on your challenges! Isn't that butterfly wonderful?

  2. Three wonderful cards. Love your perfect colorful stamping on the first - a lot harder than it looks, and beautiful colors on the others.

  3. Great cards! The window card looks wonderful and I love the look of the loose jute under the butterfly!

    Hope you're enjoying your homework!!
