Fun with Woograin and Embossing

The following card was CASE'd from the Squareheaded Stamper, Brandi Wiggins. I just had to try this technique. Thanks Brandi for sharing the instructions. Brandi used the En Fran├žais background stamp, which I don't have, so I replaced it with the Woodgrain background stamp. Voila! That's what professional CASEing is all about. :-) Here is the recipe for mine:
Paper: Soft Sude, Whisper White, Dusty Durango, So Safron, Very Vanilla, Woodgrain DSP Autumn Meadows
Accessories: Big Shot Top Note Die, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, Oval Punches, random eyelets, Crushed Curry Ribbon, Jumbo Eyelets
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Vintage Labels
Ink: Chocolate chip for edges and Markers named below;
1) First I colored onto the stamp Inspired with Nature using the following markers: Elegant Eggplant, Yo Yo Yellow, Crushed Curry, Only Orange, Dusty Durango and Mellow Moss.
2) Huff on the stamp and stamp onto Whisper White Cardstock. Before removing your stamp, put the black part of the Stamp-a-ma-jig into place so you can reposition the stamp for the next step.
3) Be sure to keep the Stamp-a-ma-jig in place when you remove the stamp. Clean the stamp and ink with Versamark. Stamp directly over the Inspired by Nature image again with Versamark.
4) Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
5) Using the Woodgrain background stamp, stamp over top the flower image using Versamark. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
6) Starting from the center working out, gradually sponge on three different colors. I used Yo Yo Yellow in the center, then Crushed Curry, then Dusty Durango.
7) Cut out the image with the Top Note die. Ink the edges in Chocolate Chip.
8) I distressed the edges by running my nail across the edges.
Check out Brandi's webpage. She does some awesome doodling on the edges of her cards.
