All Eyes On...You

It's the 20th of the month and we are all back for another edition of All Eyes On... This month we found our inspiration in none other than YOU! Did you know that Wplus9 has a Flickr Gallery? Everyone is encouraged to upload your Wplus9 creations to the gallery to help spread the inspiration. So this month, I asked all of the ladies to go through the Gallery and pick out a card to CASE. I know, fun, right?! So we each picked a different card/person, you'll just have to visit everyone to see if maybe it was you.

I chose one that jumps out at me every time I visit the Gallery. It's simple, one layer, oh so sophisticated, and by the very talented Angeline Yong. You can find her original tag in the Gallery.

I chose to CASE her layout and use of minimal color.

I used Flora & Fauna I to stamp my dogwood image horizontally across the bottom of the tag in white ink. I traced around all of the edges of the image with a Copic to help the image stand out just a bit more.

I kept the placement of the sentiment the same and used "BIRTHDAY Wishes" from Spring Post. I loved here use of pearls on her original tag, so I mimicked this by placing black pearls in the center of each bloom. To finish it off, I added a die cut butterfly with another punched butterfly on top if it. Just like the snowflake embellishment in Angeline's original. To create the pattern on the punched butterfly, I simply stamped the dogwood image and punched the butterfly from a portion of the image. This is a great way to add an interesting random pattern.
