I've CASEd a card today because I know my husband will like it and it has a tilted layer which is good for me to use since I rarely consider tilting an option. This was a great learning opportunity for me. I don't have the project owner's info, I believe it came from a swap with my team, and I thank them for inspiring me today!

My husband and I come from the era where we had typing class (It was required!) and we learned on an electric typewriter just like this one. So I colored the typewriter using Blends: Smoky Slate Light and Dark and then removed some of the ink with the color lifter. I like the effect with the color lifter. It seems like the color lifter in the Blends is a slightly stronger liquid than what I am used to with Copic markers, but the result I get from using it is better for card applications. 

The only embellishment on this is a Nature's Twine bow in Blackberry Bliss. My husband likes shiny and bling, but I didn't really feel there was a good matchup with either pearls, rhinestones or wink of stella, so I left it as is. He will love this!

Focal Layer: 2 1/2 x 3 1/8"
Focal Mat Layer: 2 3/8 x 3 1/4"

Tilted Mat Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 1/4"
Background  Layer: 4 x 5 1/4"

Looking for more Stampin' Up! action? 

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Sprinkles and Splatters (petal pink splatters under the blackberry bliss letters)

Thanks for stopping by!
