Yey, it’s time for another CASE Study with our fabulous muse for January Donna Mikasa! Take a look at this week’s awesome inspiration:



I love Donna’s card so much, in fact at first I did more of a direct copy, but then I changed tracks slightly and white heat embossed my sentiment onto a vellum tag and layered it over another tag I’d blended distress inks over and spritzed with perfect pearls. I used the February Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp for my supplies and picked out some patterned papers to layer under my tags. The kit comes with some Claudine Helmuth white paint and I brushed a little of that over some of the patterned papers to mute the colours and give a distressed look. I also roughed up the edges and stitched a little too. I only attached the layers together in the middle so that the edges could stand up a bit give that casual look. So in the end, my case of Donna’s card turned out quiet different but hopefully you can see how I was inspired :)
