Case Study

This week's CASE Study is a gorgeous card by Bar.  When I saw this card in her blog a while back, I was smitten with the color palette, teal and black create a wonderful, striking combination.

Bar's card inspired me in several ways: the color palette, of course, the use of Graphic 45 paper, the carnival theme, and the minimal embellishments for an elegant yet vintage look.  The top teal panel on my card is an embossed metal sheet from Ten Seconds Studios, I embossed the peacock metal sheet with my Tim Holtz damask folder and lightly sanded the embossed image to add contrast.  The bottom left panel is from Graphic 45's A Proper Gentleman collection.  The right hand panel is from Webster's HollyVogue collection.  The main image is from Prickley Pear's Collage ATC transparency collection.  I cut the transparency to size, ran it through my Zyron machine and added teal, blue, and chocolate glitters to the back of the transparency.  The ribbon on my card is satin instead of grosgrain and I really like the sheen it adds to the card.  The pretty turquoise rhinestones are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  Psst, if you haven't checked out Judy's bling, you are SOO missing out!! ;)

I apologize for the dark, blurry picture, it was taken at night time. :(  A new CASE card will be posted on Thursday, I hope you can play along too!

Thanks for stopping by!
