The Journey Awakens the Soul


Greetings! It is time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational!  This week we have a CASE challenge based on the gorgeous sample below: 
For my own card, I chose to use a similar design and color scheme. Since I gave most of my background papers away, I chose four different shades of gray paper and stenciled each using a combination of Crafty Workshop and Tim Holtz Stencils and Black Soot Distress Ink.  The die cut is actually an Alterations Pocket Watch die cut with the top cut off.  The focal image, inked for the first time, is by BLine Designs and was water colored with Distress Markers and attached to the card front with foam dots.  The paper string and metal journal tag are by Idea-ology.  I hope you will pop over to Inkspirational to browse through the gorgeous samples of the rest of the Design Team and then create one of your own.  Our sponsor for the month of September is Inspired By Stamping.  One lucky month long participant will win a gift card.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Bline do some fab vintage/retro images and I love how you've gently watercoloured this one. Great take on the CASE.

I like how you created your own DPs using stencils. The patterns really work well with a male design.
