Stampotique Designers Challenge #48

It's challenge time again at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog!  This week the challenge is to CASE a Stampotique Designer.  How awesome is that?!  So much inspiration to choose from....

I have decided to try my hand at CASE-ing the work of the very talented Kate Crane.  I had fun trawling back through her blog to find a project that I could CASE pretty closely.  Toward the end of last year Kate made a bookmark for one of the Stampotique Designer Challenges, and I had two of the three stamps, so I thought it would be a good one to try.  You can see Kate's original masterpiece right here on her blog.

I was missing the splatter stamp, so had to make do with splats of ink from the end of the dropper.

I think mine is a little bit 'heavier' (darker?) than Kate's, and those splats are quite obviously not the same.

Overall I am pretty happy with how it turned out - but how awesome would it be to see them side by side in real life??  Kate - fancy a trip Down Under??  Just kidding...  ;)

Thanks for stopping by

Love your 'splatters'. Great 'CASE'
It would be great if Kate Crane could visit Down Under. I must get my hands on her DVD`s.
