CASEing the Catty - #CTC366 Farewell Annual Catty Free as a Bird

It's time to say farewell to the Annual Catalogue this week at CASEing the Catty #CTC366. 

Welcome to the blog hop or you may have come from Lauren Meiklejohn

I have chosen one of my favourite stamp sets, Free as a Bird to feature this week which is highlighted on page 82 of the Annual Catalogue.  

I decided to keep the colours the same but changed the card to a landscape layout with the Stitched Rectangle dies as my centrepiece.  

I had only this week learnt from a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator that you can use a Colour Lifter to blend your watercolor pencils to blend out the strokes instead of using water in a Water Painter.  

It makes it so much easier with the small details of the stamp set as they don't run so much and therefore you have a lot more control.

Finally, I finished the card with a sentiment cut out with a half of one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends dies and some twine.

Stamp Set:  Free as a Bird
Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Basic White
Ink:  Black Memento 
Accessories:  Cut 'n Emboss Machine, Hippo & Friends Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Watercolor Pencils from both Assortments, Thick Baker's Twine (retired)

Thanks for joining me this week, now it's time to see what Julia Quinn has created.
