Are you ready for another "CASE the Designer" challenge at Global Design Project
this week? What does CASE mean, I hear you ask? There are many definitions of CASE (Copy and Share Everything), but in this "case" it means Copy and Selectively Edit. You can be inspired by anything on the card. What will you copy, what will you edit, and simply, what inspired you to make this project your own. Here is my card this week:
So, I guess I had better tell you who we are CASEing this week. Drum roll please....................
I love Brian's signature "clean" style and rather stupidly thought he would be fairly easy to CASE. Turns out that no, he wasn't! So I ended up choosing to make my card square like Brian's and used the same colours.
Initially I had Penguins stuck in my head (thanks Brian!), but in the end I choose to use this Cardinal image because it hadn't seen ink yet! Once I sponged my cloud background and stamped the branches, the card came together quickly.
I fussy cut my wee birdie and then very gently burnished him to round his fat little tummy, before sticking him onto the branch with Dimensionals. I really love the tone on tone sentiment. It is such a big word, that using any other colour would have completely overtaken the whole card.
It is amazing the diversity of the DT's projects when CASEing the same designer. Head on over to Global Design Project
to take a look, then get cracking on your own entry. You have until Saturday 28th November to submit your design. Can't wait to see it!
