CASEing the Catty - #CTC137 Artistic Expression

 

How exciting!! I was honoured to be chosen as one of the new crew members for the CASEing the Catty Sunday Design Crew.  CASEing the Catty Facebook group is a group of Stampin' Up demonstrators from Australia and NZ who love to create using the Stampin' Up catalogue as inspiration. Anyone can join the CASEing the Catty challenge. Each Sunday night a new category is uploaded and the following Saturday night the challenge closes with the winner being the most 'liked' entry, and another card is chosen as the Crew Pick by the Design Team. 

This is my first post under that umbrella, with the theme this week being "Artistic Expression".  You have arrived here from the blog of an inspiring lady and friend of mine, Julia Quinn. She's certainly been busy creating this week!!



I have chosen to copy a design from Page 141


My interpretation:


The DSP on the top left and top right are from Pick a Pattern. All the other elements are diecut from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies, with the flower being stamped first with the Oh So Eclectic stamp set (loving this bundle of late), then adhered to either Lemon Lime Twist or Basic Black cardstock, except the leaf which I chose to leave untrimmed.  The greeting is from Beautfiul You. Instead of leaving the Whisper White layer plain, I embossed it with the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic TIEF.  If you are wanting to try this yourself, the circle size I used was 1 3/8".  I liked the quirky placement of the white layer.  

Thanks for stopping by - now be sure to pop on over and check out what Judy May has created for us this week.
