Happy Little Stampers: CASE this Designer- Joyce

Hi folks! Today at Happy Little Stampers we are CASEing the wildly talented Joyce. She created this simply stunning card. I have to admit, I have never really done this technique before. You see it everywhere.

I had to mess a few up until I caught on to what to do. I probably didn't even do it the right way. I stamped my Penny Black image and then I cut out a section which I colored in. I pieced it back together and there ya have it. 

I used flowers. It just seems to look better to me with flowers.  My first card I did with the cut out in the center. The cut out was to big and I felt you couldn't appreciate the uncolored section.

My next card was the same with a smaller circle cut out. Better, but still not quite right.

My last card I did the cut out off the paper and like Goldilocks, this one was just right.

What do you think?

I made all my cards sympathy cards cause I usually need them in a hurry and don't always have time to make one.

Let's see how you CASE Joyce's card this month over at Happy Little Stamper's CASE the Designer!

Hello Sue!
Love your design and Message!
What a beautiful card!

Joyce said...

I must admit that I really like all of your designs. Glad you showed them all. And, I did my technique exactly how you did yours--looks complicated, but really so easy. I do think that your first is my favorite--you have achieved a perfect balance. Those flowers are so pretty, and they work so well with your sentiment. Thanks for CASing me. It's such a treat to see.

I am visiting "round and about" via Darnell's blog. I do love all your cards, but my favorite has to be the last one. Not only does the coloring/non-coloring make the viewer take a second look, but then the circle cut off the right hand edge demands a third look. Very beautiful and perfect for a sympathy card. Can you share your coloring medium with us? You do it with much class. Thanks.
