CSC #131



I am sharing my first ever card for the CASE Study challenge blog.
Julie Ebersole is the Muse for the month of March and here is the  inspiration piece:




I as drawn to the kraft with the white embossing and the fabulous colours that Julie used to colour the image.  I have never Copic coloured on kraft before and was surprised that it was very forgiving, however the white embossing with the Copics?  Not forgiving at all, so I cleaned it up a bit using a colourless blender, but I still see the errors loud and clear.  I pulled Fancy Folk Art out one more time for my card so that I could try another technique with the stamp.  This time embossing with white and then Copic colouring.  Thanks for looking.






All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White, Kraft
Stamps: Fancy Folk Art
Ink:  Versamark (Tsukineko)
other: white embossing powder, assorted Copic markers

Pretty card. I have never embossed on Kraft; I still thinks it looks nice. Loving those folk art flowers more and more. Might end up getting this set yet.

Your colours on the kraft are beautiful Tracey and I love the white-embossed sentiment too (although I'm not sure if that IS the purpose of life LOL!)

I keep meaning to try the coloring on kraft! I love the look! And these flowers are so pretty! Kind of folk artsy that makes me think of a pretty embroidered quilt!

This is such a great stamp and I love how it looks on kraft--perfect for the folk art look! Now that several companies have come out with folk art sets, it is SO tempting to want them all!
