CASE at Stampotique

I'm not one for casing if I can help it but that is just what the Stampotique challenge asks for so I chose to case this lovely page from the fabulous Gez!
I knew I wanted to try to capture the lovely colours used (not quite managed that I fear!) and the word fragments (some Stampotique the rest hand written) and used my gorgeous alpine maiden (at least that is what I call her!)

The wording reads "In my soul I know there is spirit, beauty and creativity. It's just a pity that some days I find it hard to believe!"
(I don't know about you but since Blogger has had yet another change I cannot enlarge photo's to really see the gorgeous art work people make and that includes being able to read stuff on pages like mine!)

Thank you so much for the inspiration Gez....I enjoyed having a play...I'm finding creating a real struggle at the mo but this has made me feel heaps better ;)
Thanks for looking
xoxo Sioux
