Altenew Beautiful Day CASE’d Card

2018-02-05 19.05.13-1
I stumbled across a different version of this card using Altenew’s  Beautiful Day on Flickr (created by pearlyg8s2) and was blown away by the incredible detail in her coloring!  I just HAD to copy it!  Her card was done in  reds, greens and golds but I chose to use blues in mine.  I pretty much completely CASE’d by positioning the peony and leaf images almost exactly as she did, and then, with her card on my phone as a prompt, I copied the details of her coloring, petal by petal, leaf by leaf.  This was such a great learning experience for me, as I used my Zig Clean Color Brush markers‘s in ways I never had before.

Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers were fabulous for the depth and richness of coloring these images; after completing the blossoms and leaves, I then added the shadows around the outer edges with the markers as well, smudging it a bit with my finger to soften it.  I adhered the panel to a white base card, then spattered a little brown ink and white craft paint and attached a few sequins.

To finish my card, I heat-embossed in black the sentiment from Altenew’s Label Love set and lifted it up a little with some double-stick foam tape behind it.  This may be one of my all-time favorite cards I’ve ever made and am so grateful to “pearlyg8s2” for the inspiration!
