Inspired by Jill Foster

Happy Labor Day Weekend :) I hope you guys are going to have more fun then me, I'm working all three days!

This week on the Penny Black Blog they challenged us to CASE one of the designers cards. I'm sure it won't be a shock that I decided to CASE a card by Jill Foster :) I absolutely love her style! This is Jill's card here.

I love the color scheme she used. Bright colors + Black = Gorgeous!!!

Here is my take

I stamped the star burst (Penny Black, Trims) in Versamark then heat set with white. I used broken china, peeled paint, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, and barn door to create the rainbow background. In order to add some more interest I added black enamel accents on top of the dots of the star burst. I rounded the corners of the panel and added a black border.

For the center I die cut (Spellbinders, Labels 8) my label then stamped the sentiment (Penny Black, To You) in jet black archival ink (Ranger). To add a little bit of bling like Jill has on her card I outlined my label with black diamond stickles. Once dry I added my label with foam tape to my black cardstock banner. I adhered the whole panel with foam tape to a white cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by, if you have the time stop over to the Penny Circle on Flickr. Talk about inspiration :)
