CASE Study #180 and FLOURISHES Timeless Tuesdays #260


I love the doily stamps in the CTMH  Spring/Summer Idea Book.  "Love Doily" was actually released last spring, but it is a perfect match to the pattern in the Jubilee background paper!  I knew I had to combine the two onto one project.

The photo at the Case Study Challenge Blog this week gave me the inspiration.  And over at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, they suggested a card with no coloring - just stamping.  So that worked as well.

To fill in the white spaces on the card, I mixed Honey reinker with water, rubbing alcohol and CTMH's Create-A-Shade paint to spritz some of the yellow on the background paper onto the card front.

Products I used (all CTMH):
White Daisy cardstock
Jubilee Background paper (X7181B)
Sweet Leaf
Stamp Sets:
Love Doily (B1418) - background doily
Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop (G1079) - square doily image
Dreamer (B1439) - butterfly
You're the Best (C1571) - sentiment
Sparkles Clear Flourishes - Small (Z1812)
Sparkles - Clear Assortment (Z1752)
Silver Geometric Washi Tape (Z1932)
Scallop Border Punch (Z1851)
Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint (Z1039)
Spray Pen (Z1380)

Here's the inside of the card - you can add whatever greeting you want!
