Yes, another CASE!

I thought I was done making CASEs of cards for the CASE Study DT Call this week, until I stumbled upon THIS CARD by Lindsey at Occasional Crafting on Pinterest - it got pinned immediately, and I quickly pulled out some watercolour paper and my paints and got painting.  
 After reading Lindsey's post, I realised I used a completely different technique to her card - I used watercolour paper, wet it, then painted some very rough flower and leaf shapes in dark pink and green. I added the sentiment from Winnie and Walter (the same sentiment Lindsey used) in Hero Arts black ink.  I then stamped a leaf outline (from a discontinued Stampin' Up set) and a flower centre from Wplus9 "Fresh Cut Florals" (probably the androecium, or staminal ring - you do KNOW I'm a science nerd!), also in Hero Arts black.  I then stuck the (warped) panel onto a pink card front with a HEAP of foam adhesive (I recently bought a roll of foam adhesive, which is much easier when you need LOTS!). The finishing touch was a white row of faux stitching.  Done!
Here's Lindsey's card  (click on the photo for the link to Pinterest)
