Hello, CASE Study fans! What a treat it has been to have Laurie Schmidlin as our Muse this month. Are you ready to see what she has created to inspire us this week?
|By Laurie Schmidlin|
You probably won't be surprised to see that I was inspired by the woodgrain! I also chose to use neutrals with a pop of red (though my pearls are darker in the photo than they are in person), the love theme, and the placement of the focal point on the diagonal.
I used WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes and Additions to stamp the woodgrain with white ink onto a kraft panel, then the large branch image with Early Espresso. I stamped two smaller branches onto white cardstock and cut them out to layer on top.
I used a scrap of kraft cardstock that had been debossed with woodgrain to die cut a heart frame, then lightly sponged it with Early Espresso ink. I placed an Espresso heart behind it and added the letters with a white gel pen.
