I chose to CASE Maureen Merritt. I loved the romantic feel of her project and knew I could come up with the materials necessary to attempt it. This was her project:
I haven't worked much with stencils and don't own any that would work to achieve the look of Maureen's card, but I pride myself on being able to find ways around obstacles like that. Making my own stencil by cutting paper out with one of my die's, for example, helped me to get the effect I wanted. I used the Poppy Elsa Butterly Branch and also my oval framelit. Together they worked to give me a pattern over which I was able to use my sponge dauber to add Melon Mambo ink. For the vellum leaves, I used my Penny Black Dancing Leaves die.
For my bits of "dazzle", I added three of the tiniest of the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings embosslits folder cut from Gold Foil and several of the large rhinestones coloured with my Melon Mambo Blendabilities. The "hello" is cut from Gold Foil as well and the "sweet love" is heat embossed using Gold Embossing powder.
Finally, I used my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on my base cardstock of Naturals White.
