CASE-ing the Catty - A Second Attempt, this time with brayered tissue paper!

Hithere!

I discovered a big "oops!" with the card that I posted yesterday.  While flicking through the Annual Catty looking for inspiration for the CASE-ing the Catty challenge, I actually turned one page too far & slipped into the "Artistic Expression" section rather than the "Thanks" section.  You would have thought that I would realise that the page numbers in my post didn't correlate!  Sorry for the brain-freeze!  So I thought I would make another card &, this time, stick within the confines of Pages 144 - 153!!!  :)

You can never have too many thank you cards, so I made this little notecard, inspired by the spotty bag on Page 148.



The card is all SU, except for the flower petals, which are made from generic tissue paper that I had in my wrapping paper supplies.  I have brayered a piece with Coastal Cabana at one end & Bermuda Bay at the other end.  Then I layered the almost dry (Bermuda Bay inked) brayer over a section of Coastal Cabana to get a nice in-between colour.  I have used 4 different sized scallop punches, with one layer of each colour (so 12 layers in total).  I added a gold brad in the centre & scrunched up each layer individually & then unfurled them to create the bloom.

You will find the challenge here:-

& my "oopsie" entry here.

Luckily I am quite comfortable with having a good laugh at myself because I also discovered that the Yippee-Skippee MDS download that I thought wasn't available HAS been available for over 12 months!  :o  The upside of that is I can now do the wall art I was hoping to.  :)  Yay!

Thanks for stopping by.

Edited to add

You are a genius!! I admire how you can third so well in the third dimension. I'm lucky to try to work in 2 dimensions, ha!

Your flowers in their pots are just beautiful.

You have such a generous heart to share so willingly .

Thank you very much!
