Today's CAS challenge is a featured stamper challenge to CASE a card from the amazing Loll Thompson's gallery. Loll is one of my CAS heroes-she manages to make clean and simple look simply amazing EVERY time! Here's the beauty I chose to CASE. I didn't have the same cherry blossom stamp so I went with another. I decided to go a bit warmer with Vanilla cs instead of white for my base and I used a reverse mask with the postage punch to sponge my squares instead of sponging in a die. I cut my squares and stamped and colored them first. Then I laid my revers mask over them and sponged the Suede ink. I used a slightly narrower strip of dp and put a slightly wider strip on the inside-didn't see that she had blossoms on the inside til I was uploading! I used my stampamajig to position the sentiment and traced with the Sahara marker for shading. I added score lines to accent the strip and I also sponged carefully along the edges of each square to help them stand out while still retaining the un-sponged edges.

Great case and both soooo pretty. So neat how you did the sponging and left the edges white with the whisper of colors...they stand out so well with the darker strip...well done...TFs..:0)
