Shelley Case from the Bare Elements line, Narratives (Papers, Epoxy Stickers, Chipboard Embellishments) by Karen Russell, all for Creative Imaginations. Stamp credits: Fresh Bloom by Stampendous; smaller little splootchy center of a flower looking thing-a-ma-bob by Magenta; Staz-On Ink in Jet Black; Watercolor Crayons by SU!; Aqua Painter; Silk flowers from craft supply store.
The paper you see on the body was first cut to fit the outside of the case (it took two pieces, that had to be joined together to span around the entire case), and then stamped and watercolored while flat. I simply couldn't resist stamping on this paper, and loved how it provided such a nice back-drop to the stamped images! Each piece was measured, and then cut, and run through a Xyron to apply adhesive and then all applied to the case. I prefer Xyron adhesive for such projects because it has no odor, not messy, and I'm too impatient for Mod Podge or other wet glues to dry. (insert rolling eyeballs)
So . . . what are the two things about the Narratives papers especially that delight me? I'm sure you have already guessed . . . *wink*!
Thanks for lookin'!
