CASE Study 3rd Anniversary


Hola everyone, I adore Miss Chupa and am so happy to help her celebrate CASE STUDY's 3rd Anniversary festivities.

The theme of the challenge is Inspiration, so I looked to one of my earliest source of inspiration -- the amazing Lisa Spangler. I love her style, her personality, and all the pizazz she exudes in all her work! Take a gander at this colorful masterpiece Lisa created...

Inspired by Lisa Spangler


I was inspired by all the colors and geometric background. And the black labeled sentiment! Such a fun design! The A Million Thanks sentiment is a sneak peek of Mama Elephant's August release by the way!  

I used Distress Markers to color the background then softened it up by spritzing some water. Kinda cool effect. Okay, be sure to comment along the way to be eligible for all the prizes! Good luck!!!
