CASEing Kim for Time Out

Hi! I’m here with a  post of a card that I made by CASEing this terrific one by Kim.

Here’s Kim’s beautifully designed CAS card:

Here’s my definitely not CAS CASE of Kim’s card!slide001 slide002    I used the ARTplorations Stencil Big Bloom Factory on this card.

First, I reverse stenciled by inking up the stencil with a black ink pad. slide001Then I printed with the inked-up stencil. Then, I sponged on the red, blue, yellow and green inks. slide003Next, I traced over the printed outlines with a black alcohol marker to darken the printed image. slide003I added white highlights by doing some more tracing and drawing with a gel pen.

The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Big Greetings set.

What does Summertime fun mean to me?  I’d have to say yes to many of the following – spending time by the seaside, foreign travel, camping in the great outdoors or simply enjoying time in my garden?  Besides camping I have done all of these things this summer! This ATC holder is definitely inspired by my love of being in my garden.
