I'm back with another CASE from the September/October issue of Paper Crafts, along with my blogging friend Donelda! Today we're interpreting her choice from the magazine, Betsy Veldman's Doily Gratitude card on p. 56:
This was challenging! I went in a few different directions before I ended up with this finished product. The ink-sprayed canvas on the original made me think of denim for some reason, but that idea didn't really go anywhere. Then the doilies made me think of snowflakes. Since I didn't have any large snowflake stamps, I went with an overall background pattern of them. My large chipboard element has way more coats of paint than it should! I started with two coats of gesso (the second because I forgot to cover the edges properly with the first coat). Then I thought silver might look good, so I sponged it with some silver ink. Didn't like that look! It took two coats of acrylic craft paint to cover the silver properly. Another small chipboard element, some lace and a sentiment finished the card.
Remember to check out what Donelda did for her CASE of this card! Plus, we had so much fun this week, we've picked two more cards to CASE next week. Hope we'll see you then!
(On an entirely different note: Today is Remembrance Day in Canada. I doubt I'd be writing this blog, or making cards with rubber stamps, or doing many of the other things I enjoy doing, if it wasn't for the freedom I enjoy today thanks to the generations that came before me, a few of whom were my relatives.)
