CASE Study 4th Anniversary!



Good morning!

So happy you are popping in for the CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!  I am so happy that Chupa invited me back for the festivities this year :)

We were tasked to find some inspiration, and make a card based on it.  I stumbled upon these amazing posters by artist Yoni Alter:


I love the bold colors and the transparency of each building.  To get a similar feeling, I stamped the Shanghai Skyline (from Altenew's Sketchy Cities Abroad) onto vellum.   I then colored the backside of the vellum with Copic Markers for some vibrant pop!  In person, you can really appreciate the translucent buildings :)




There is an amazing line-up of designers today:

Tasnim Ahmed
Barbara Anders
Julie Ebersole
Mariana Grigsby
Debby Hughes
Cristina Kowalczyk
Anika Lerche
Jocelyn Olson
Jennifer Rzasa (you are here)
Laurie Schmidlin
Amy Sheffer
Julia Stainton
Julee Tilman

Please comment (by midnight, 8/26) for your chance to win some fantastic prizes!  Sponsors today include:
Altenew (woohoo!)
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
Simon Says Stamp
Paper Sweeties

For even more fun, you can play along by CASEing one of the cards on the hop!  Your next stop is Laurie!
