CTC #185 Best Route inspiration pages

Welcome back for another week at CASEing the Catty as we work our way through the different sections of the catalogue. This week we look at pages 52-65, and my inspriation picture came from page 59 and the silhouette on the multicoloured background of watercolour wiht the Enjoy Life set.

At least - that was where I started!

I have always loved silhouette images and this set appeals to me for both its images and sentiments.
I have been having a lot of success using the stamparatus and doing Multicoloured stamping.  So instead of watercolour I thought I'd try a multicoloured panel.
Yesterday's post has all the instructions for how to do this (you can find it here.)
I LOVE the Bokeh dots stamp images- this one is the starry background, isn't it gorgeous.

So from there I switched up the colours and the stampset but still used the multicoloured panel and the silhouette image, but this time the tall tree from Rooted in Nature. Here's a photo collage of the steps I used - i used both marker and sponge dauber to add this time.

I quite like the effect of the starry sky.

Thanks for looking today, if you have any questions about the technique just leave me a comment. I hope you try it - but be warned - you may get inky and have to be very careful not to smudge your piece  - I may have had a few discarded pieces along the way....

Don't forget we love to see what you create using the same pages as inspiration. Just post a photo to our Facebook page.

Next this week on the hop is Sandra 

Before me this week is Rachel

 I hope you have a creative week and remember,

"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz
