What a great technique in the Animal Expedition Chapter CTC#183

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop challenge CASEing the CATTY.

We are a team who love to inspire and challenge you to see the catalogue in new ways as we CASE Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit from the fabulous lineup in the Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

No automatic alt text available.

This week, we are exploring the Animal Expedition chapter - pages 26 - 73.

and I want to share with you some inspiration from the awesome technique shown on page 33 showing us another way to use those fabulous Stampin' Blends.

Even though the little piggys from This Little Piggy are totally super cute, I've decided to use the ever lovely Beautiful You stamp set.

This is a lovely stamp set to colour and the images are just gorgeous!!

I had 2 attempts at creating the tartan background using my Blends - the one above is more measured and rigid, and the one below I just wildly freehanded ......

and in the end I preferred the looseness of the freehand background which was more open and less intense!!  The other background seemed to overshadow the feature panel a bit too much.  I do know that some people would not be comfortable with the unevenness of my background - but I really do like it!!!  

And after you've hopped around the whole team and been inspired over and over again, add your project to our lineup on the facebook challenge page.  

Until next time
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x
