CASE Study Guest Designer


Hello Friends! I was so excited when I got a note from Chupa asking me to be the Guest Designer for the CASE Study challenge.  There is a fantastic design team for this challenge, so I'm pretty honored to be guest designing for them.  Now!  Onto the challenge for this week!  Check out Lisa Spangler's inspiration card below.  If you are a Hero Arts fan, I'm sure you are familiar with Lisa's amazing work, but if not, be sure to pop on over to her blog as I have no doubt that you will be inspired.

I'll admit to the inspiration card stumping me for a little bit, but I kept going back to the colors and the free form of how the colors were applied.  So, I went for the color inspiration in a bit of a brighter hue and tried to add a touch of the graphic feel of the card.
I also thought I'd show you another card inspired by Lisa's card above.  This was the first card I made. I like it, but not quite as much as the one above! I don't color so I wasn't even thrilled with my scribbles over my embossed sentiment!
 I'd love to see how Lisa's card inspires you.  Come play along with us over at CASE Study!

Stamps for first card: CAS-ual Fridays Breathe
Second card:  Verve Take Note
