CASE Study #135 & Simon Says Happy Birthday



This month JJ Bolton is the super talented and creative Muse at the Case Study Challenge.  I can't help buy swoon over all of her amazing creations and spotlighted in week #1 is a technique that I been is love with since I first saw her use it.  I am also submitting my project to the Simon Says Happy Birthday challenge.




Thanks to her fantastic picture tutorial I gave it a shot.  The technique itself is not complicated. Even still I went through he process really slowly because it isn't the kind of project you would want to do a redo on.   This is what I came up with...









All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Pretty Peonies
Ink:  Berry Sorbet, Simply Chartreuse, True Black
Dies: Pretty Peonies
other: foam dots


Voting is open for this week's Muse challenge until 12 pm (EST) Sunday.
My entry is No. 34
