Happy Monday Stampers ~ I used the white wash technique for my Beautiful Day for a C.A.S.E. the Catty creation.
Well I accomplished almost all my goals yesterday. I managed to get all the boards I had cut for my drawers. I have 4 glued and nailed the boards in so they are finished and back in the cabinet. I have 4 more drawers with the boards glued in and I will nail them in and put them back in the cabinet and they are done. I have 4 more drawers to do but I need to get more boards to finish them. I will work on them sometime next week. I also made the last 2 cards for my class tomorrow, as well as 3 videos and a card for this week. Today I have water aerobics this morning and may spend a little time in the pool after class. Then I will work on some more cards for this week as well as play with some ideas I want to try.
One of the groups I am in on Facebook is the C.A.S.E. the Catty Challenge group. This week they are C.A.S.E.ing the Love, Thanks, and Support section on pages 72 – 97. I looked in the catalog and ran across a card that was perfect for the technique I had started. The card I am C.A.S.E.ing is on page 79 in the lower left hand corner of the picture.
I had wanted to play with the white wash technique so Saturday I chose a couple of sets and heat embossed them using white craft ink and Whisper White embossing powder. I then used the white watercolor pencil and colored in the sections. Yesterday I took the Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Granny Apple Green pencil and colored in the butterfly like the photo in the catalog. I then cut it out. To make my card like the catalog, I took a Whisper White card base and a piece of Melon Mambo card that I had torn the bottom edge. This was attached to the center of the card base. Using the retired Polka Dot embossing folder I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight. This was added using Tear & Tape. A pearlized doily was glued to the Daffodil layer. I then added the butterfly with dimensionals. To finish my card I white embossed a sentiment and flagged the ends before adding to the center of the butterfly using glue dots. Here is my completed Beautiful Day for a C.A.S.E. the Catty creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. I have my card class tomorrow so I have to prepare for that as well as finish up the drawers so I can put some of my stuff away. It will be good to be able to find some of my supplies that I haven’t been able to locate. Have a Marvelous Monday and did you like my white wash technique on the Beautiful Day for a C.A.S.E. the Catty creation?
