The first Thursday in the month at CASE Study means we get the chance to welcome a new muse – we have non other than Kathy Racoosin joining us for September! I love Kathy and she has influenced my crafting so much! I remember an Online Card Class video I saw of Kathy’s colouring techniques and I can’t colour now without thinking of Kathy’s tips for taking an image that little bit further – a bit of white gel pen here, a touch of glitter or gloss there …… Here’s this week’s inspiration to get the month started:
See what I mean about the colouring and little extra details! My eye was drawn to the die cut, ribbon and button element combined with gorgeous flowers. I miniaturised everything and used the Fresh Cut Florals stamps and dies from Wplus9 which I’ve long admired and finally came to live with me :) I popped my tag at the top of a card covered with the most delicious yellow chevron paper. Oh and to keep in with the attention to detail that Kathy always shows, I added stickles to the berries, white enamel accents to the little flowers and some lovely Wink of Stella glitter pen to the leaves.
