Less is More - Week 216 - CASE a DT card

Interesting challenge this week over at Less is More - the DT have each produced a card and you need to choose one to CASE. They're all great starting points so I pondered for a while and finally plumped for Anne's card - which is this one:
I love the doodling around the card edge, meeting up with such a cute image. So that's the bit I really followed, plus I added a sentiment above the image although Anne's is part of the stamp she used. I skipped the bakers twine though - and this is my CASE:
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- Penny Black's 'Easter Bonnet', stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- then stamped the sentiment (Penny Black's 'Think Spring') using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink again

- and next did the doodling round the edge. Me not totally daft, didn't want to risk spending time colouring the image and then wrecking it at the 'last knockings' :)

- finally, coloured the cheeky little chick using Whispers markers

Thanks again for the inspiration ladies! I don't really send Easter cards out but I think this little lady could well be making her way up the M1 to my step-mum!

Am also entering this into the current Penny Black Saturday Challenge for March - 'Spring Blooms'. As well as the current Uniko Studio Challenge #19, which is Anything Goes.



  1. That chick is super cute. I love her hat. Great CASE.

  4. Adorable card, Di, & it would qualify for our challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2015/03/penny-black-saturday-challenge-march.html

  5. Oh, Di, your young chickie in her Easter bonnet could not be more stinkin' cute if she tried! You did a phenomenal job of CASEing Anne's cute card! I like it w/o the twine and, of course, adore the doodled frame! You were inspired to work it into her feet (claws? talons?) the way you did! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Lovely make, Di, such a cute image.

    I CASed the same card and skipped the twine too - isn't it odd? I thought the twine looked great on Anne's make though, just didn't use it myself!

  15. What a great CASEd CAS card! That's what this world needs more of--doodling!!! I used to do this wavy around the edge border thing a lot.... never think of it now. I was just eyeing this chick stamp myself... need some spring cards made. Maybe I'll CASE your CASE... and we'll get stuck in some space-time continuum thing.

  16. This is an adorable CASE'd card Di! I love that cute chick with her bonnet. Hugs, Brenda
