CASEing a Crafter: Hollyhocks

It's time for an unabashedly-CASE'd (copy-and-share-everything) card.  :-D

I found THIS on Chupa's blog via Pinterest, and was completely inspired.  I was having a difficult time figuring out how to use this Jumbo Hollyhock stamp by Stampendous, and her creation totally wowed me.


Since the stamp is so large, keeping everything simple is key.  And using amazing marker colors helps to add such interest.  A little sentiment from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes and some pearls were added, and that's it.


Thanks for letting me share this with you today!



Stamps: Jumbo Hollyhock -Stampendous; Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU Paper: Pale Plum - SU; white - PTI Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: Copic markers; pearls - Queen & Co.

I love hollyhocks! Remind me of my grandfather's garden, and have tried many times, but just can't seem to keep my plants healthy-looking, so I'm always looking for a good stamp to reproduce them. Love your card today, Colleen. I'm waiting for a new Penny black Hollyhock stamp to arrive, which is a little smaller scale.
