CASE Study Challenge #171

Time for a new challenge at CASE Study, with an awesome inspiration piece from Moxie Fab world:

I did a literal interpretation in terms of using a silhouette image filled with watercolors and whimsical patterns. However, instead of a bird, I used a wedding cake:

CASE Study 171

I started with a piece of water color paper, sprayed it with water, then added some red and yellow water color paints along with distress inks (diluted with water), trying my best to keep it random and flowing.

While that was drying, I cut out the silhouette of the cake. Since I don’t own a cake die, and I didn’t want to spend time drawing, I used a cake stamp from Inkadinkado for this process. First I stamped the cake on a piece of scrap card stock. Next I drew an outline around it and trimmed it out using scissors. Finally, I used this piece as a template to cut out the negative on the front panel of the card using a craft knife.

Once the negative was done, I chose which area of the water colored panel should show through, and stamped the flower image accordingly. The stamp is from an Inkadinkado set called Organic Fabric Flourish. All that was left was to glue the two pieces together, stamp the greeting and mount the front panel on to the card base using some foam tape. Simple and versatile. What other silhouette image do you think would work with this technique?

Do stop by the CASE Study Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team came up with along with our TWO guest designers Amy Ryall and Leigh Penner.

Thanks for stopping by!
