CASEing Bobby

Hi everyone.  Today I'm CASEing Bobby (bits and pieces).  I have long been a fan of Bobby's CAS style.  She also has a uniquely creative way of interpreting challenges. I saw THIS CARD on Bobby's blog a while ago, and have been thinking about it ever since. :)  Thought it was time for me to make one of my own. :)

I changed it up slightly.  Bobby had debossed the background iris, where I used a white die-cut.  And I used distress inks to watercolour my iris, instead of Brushos. Thanks so much Bobby for the inspiration!

I die-cut the iris from both watercolour paper and white card stock.  As I mentioned, I used distress inks to watercolour my iris and then layered it over top of the white die-cut in the background.  A simple stamped sentiment and a few sequins for sparkle and the card was done.


I hope you'll find some time to check out Bobby's blog ... I know you will have fun there!

I'm playing along with the latest CAS-ology challenge - Bud.

  31. Wonderful iris flower. With admiration I look at how you added colors, as beautifully shaded flower petals. Adding a white shadow is a brilliant solution, adding expression to the card.

  32. Why am I just seeing this now, Loll? I knew I was behind in viewing my emails and I have been going back and commenting but I must have skipped over this one. Thanks so much for the shout out,my friend, and for CASEing my card. I'm glad I could inspire you for once as you continually inspire me. How's this for ironic? You CASE my card for the CASology challenge and I end up winning with my card.
