"Playing Cards" is what I fondly call this fabulous craft we all love, and this play-date allows me to make new friends, and get to craft with them - albeit virtually, it's still a blast!
Barb and I fell in love with Joyce Mehrberg's fabulous CASology DT card here:
We discovered that, while neither had Joyce's butterfly, we both had the wonderful Flora and Fauna 2 set from Wplus9... Yay!
Are you ready Barb? Here it is:
So! I was inspired by the colors - Tombow Dual Brush Pens for me - though they were a bit different in tone, they worked a charm. I left a bit more white [I may just give them a twinkle of Stickles after our play-date] and did a few free-handed dots. Of course this whole partial coloring thing is wonderfully highlighted by Joyce's raised panel, so I used a Pierced Circle from MFT for mine - and raised the stakes with a second circle for the bitty baby butterfly. A sentimental blessing from Wplus9's Spring Post does the trick, I think.
I loved this technique, and actually forgot I'd done something similar, but long ago with this card:
Barb thank you so much for playing cards with me ... so much fun chatting away with you by telephone, too!
Joyce, I hope you're smiling that we've CASE'd your beautiful card!!! It was just too, too fun... I can't wait another second to see what Barb has done, can you?
Ready. Set. Let's go ...
