I'm also super honored that she asked me to help her celebrate this big 10th bloggy birthday. I spent an entire WEEK (seriously) deciding on the best project of hers for me to CASE (aka be inspired by aka copy). But I think I picked a good one...
I love Jenn's canvases that she creates with the funky Stampotique stamps and I always oogle them when I'm at her loft. This project of hers is from January 2011 and you can find the original post here.
I was inspired by the rich red colors, the off center heart, the textures, and of course the little character inside the heart. Here's what I created...
I really like how she turned out! I used the "Love Yourself" stamp by Unity Stamp Co and she's colored with a variety of media: acrylic paints, Gelatos, PITT Pens, and Stickles.
The texture in my heart was a very happy accident. I used crackle paste, however it just NEVER CRACKLED! So I got angry and I scorched the sucker with my heat tool... well that lead to the crackle paste bubbling up and I was left with this awesome crater like feel. I really like it!
I used a variety of Dina Wakley acrylic paints (specific supplies listed below) to paint the background. I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil "Impressions" for all the patterns. And finally, I added the quote from Ranger's Small Talk stickers.
Now for even more fun! You can participate in the celebration by CASEing one of her cards from her 10 years of crafting and linking it on her blog. You will have the chance to win fabulous prizes from all these sponsors!! You have until August 4th to submit your entries and the winners will be announced on Jenn's blog August 7th! Have fun!
