CUYL #23: CASE-ing Mone!

I really love the community of the Challenge Up Your Life blog, so when Challenge#23 was listed to CASE  the DT, I thought it was a good opportunity to go browsing, though CASE-ing isn't in my usual suite of inspiration. So a-browsing I went, and I decided to CASE Simone, the Scrappicowgirl!  Not only is her blog-name fun, her work is fun, too!  I liked her use of multiple mediums, and then when I saw the sheet music, I thought, "Yeehaw! This is it!"

I went with Simone's mixed-media approach, added some sequins, and all of this occurred over some vintage sheet music! Here is some of her inspiring work (Uh... I emailed her to make sure it was okay to post her stuff, but I figure since it's a CASE the DT challenge, I'll be ok!):

And here is my CASEd card:

Supplies and notes:

  • Theresa Collins modeling paste mixed with my kids' Crayola poster paints (hey-- they were nearby as I was mixing color for this card for the MFT Color Challenge... I had extra paste, so I used it on various scraps.  
  • The Crafter's Workshop Stencil
  • Multicast Imports sequins in Box of Chocolate palette
  • Vintage sheet music
  • DCWV paper pack and Core'dinations cardstock and kraft
  • Stamp Simply sentiment stamped with Tim Holtz embossing ink and Ranger embossing powder
Cheers to you, Mone. Thanks for the inspiration, girl!
