Caseing the Catty

Every Sunday a new challenge is posted on Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge

 I have been endeavoring to participate in one for a while, BUT time just seems to escape me every week...This week I took a quick look through those pages, WOW so many beautiful examples to case. 

BUT this just hit me in the face and said do this one!!!
So I am a very literal thinker!!! So thinking outside the box is very difficult for me....

So to participate in Caseing the Catty you can CASE directly or be inspired by a sketch/layout, colour combo or embellishment.  So not having this stamp set I thought which one do I have that is similar - Beautiful Bouquet pg 92 had a similar flower.
I absolutely LOVE the new Lovely Words Thinlits Dies pg 157 which has a die that has Friend in it...Can you see where I am going here....
 Deciding the colours were easy as I loved this colour combinations from Stampin' Up....
I thought that they were Flirty Flamingo, Baby Powder, Old Olive and Soft Sky,
well these are the colours I used anyways

Once I had cut the "Friend'  from Lovely Words Thinlits, I added Baby Powder ink on a dauber to the word. I started by adding my flowers using the Masking Technique for my flowers and leaves and then I added in the rest of the flowers. To create this card I wanted to make sure that my flowers and leaves were masked so that the colours didn't look all messy underneath....
Here is how I did this..I simply stamped the flower image on some photo copy paper and cut it out by hand yes!!! by hand. Who else loves fussy is so relaxing!!!
Then I placed the stamped image over my original flower to cover it (see on the left hand side) and then stamped my leaves in Old Olive, once you remove your flower mask it reveals the leaves behind the flower (see on the right hand side).
Sorry my photos are not the best!!

Now we were up to the fun part, adding all the details. I felt it needed this done behind the word Friend and then I also felt it needed a Flirty Flamingo Friend....YES!!! I do tend to overthink it and YES!!! I proCRAFTinate a lot!!!

I actually offset the Friend on my card front over the other 'Friend' 
to give it the shadow effect, hope you like it!!!OK who is ready for the big reveal....Here is my Caseing the Catty CASE
AND of course you have to decorate the inside as well

I had so much fun playing along with this one that I am actually looking forward to seeing what the challenge is on Sunday....
