CASE Study #150 and Moxie Fab World Birthday Challenge



Happy Thursday and time for another CASE Study Challenge.  This is my thrid week as Guest Designer at the CASE Study blog where this month's Muse is Jocelyn Olson.  Jocelyn has a fantastic digital card to share for this week's inspiration. Aren't the colours amazing?





For my CASE Study I decided on which details of Jocelyn's card that I wanted to use for my card.  The stark white background, the colours (which just pop off that background) and the circular focal point.  I used the hot air balloons and dies from Papertrey Ink's Up, Up & Away plus the Cloud dies to create my circular focal images.  Each balloon shares two colours from the inspiration which I coloured and blended with Copic markers. I used 13 markers in total. I backed the two smaller clouds and three balloons with foam tape for dimension. I am also submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World Birthday Card Challenge and Seize the Birthday Anything Goes.

This is sl clever and creative. I love how you were able to take your inspiration and then go in a different direction with your card. Very clever play on the colors, and I am always happy when I see a card with those hot air balloons.
