CASE Study Meadow Card


Hello again,
Second offering today for both the RetroSketches sketch this week and the CASE Study challenge with Julia Stainton. Here's her gorgeous card...

I love the used of corrugated card and that foliage is so lovely, so much to inspire me! Here's what I came up with...

Starting with an A6 card, I cut a slightly smaller rectangle of cardboard on which I had teared off the top layer of to reveal the corrugated card underneath. I distressed it using Picket Fence Distress Stain and Peeled Paint Distress Ink which picked up the texture really well. I also heat embossed some areas with white embossing powder.
Next, I stamped the Blooming Meadow stamp from Hero Arts onto watercolour paper - which I had distressed using Pumice Stone - using Peeled Paint and a spritz of water to give a watercolour effect.
After wrapping two pieces of green twine around the layers, I heat embossed a Paper Smooches sentiment onto kraft card using white embossing powder and fixed on top of the twine with Pinflair.

A different look for me but I think it came out really well. Hope you like!
