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... ;)
