LOC Case Study Guest Designer

This week the Case Study Challenge is being sponsored by Layers of Color and I am honoured to be one of the Guest Designers.  There is extra inspiration to be had with the colour combination from the The Play Date Cafe

This months Muse is Eva Dobilas and this week we are casing her gorgeous card that you can see here.

The LOC Designers are using the Granny's Jewelry art stamp set and Delicious Dots art stencil that Laura of Layers of Color is kindly donating as this weeks prize.  We are hoping to give you some inspiration for these delish products.

 I have embossed the image with Tsukineko Gold Embossing Powder - I am really impressed with the thickness of these powders - they are very rich and have such fabulous dimension, as you can see in the photo above.  I layered it onto a pleated medallion I created after being inspired by Tim Holtz wonderful DieCut, which I do not have but thought I would have a try anyway - what do you think - a bit more practice and I will have it mastered....perhaps...LOL

The Delicious Dots art stencil has been sponged with Distressing Ink and I have to say I am loving this art stencil more and more - it has so much potential.  The sentiment is from The Love Chapter art stamp set, illustrated by Layers of Color's newest illustrator Nina Bracket.

For more inspiration, make sure you visit the Case Study - we would love to see you play long in this weeks challenge.
