What is a CASE Challenge?
So what is a CASE Challenge? It is when someone puts out a sketch idea for others to use creatively in their own creations. I am often asked what does CASE stand for. Simply put CASE: Copy And Selectively Edit.
So if you see a card creation you like, you might choose to try and make it yourself. Either an exact copy, but with your own supplies and stamping technique. But you might decide you like most of the original creation, but either you don’t have exactly what was used or you might want to change an element of the card. We would call this selectively editing!
However you feel about it, it is always a good idea to give credit where credit is due. But also, be proud of your own creative projects and share them too.
How do play along in the Monthly Sketch Challenge?
Anyone is welcome to play along in my Monthly Sketch Challenge. I share the current and previous months here on the blog. You can find it quickly at the bottom of each page here on the BLOG.
You can also look under the BE A VIP! heading at the top of the page. Then under the CUSTOMER CARD CANDY APPRECIATION there is each month you can view and see what I offered up and what was submitted for the monthly challenges.
Each month, I offer up a sketch, sometimes an original of my own, but most of the time it is a sketch that has been published by others. I often play in the sketch challenges of the following groups:
- Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS)
- Global Design Project (#GDP)
- CAS(E) this SKETCH! (#CTS)
- Fab Friday (#FabFri)
When you play with me, I have no real rules! You are welcome to create with any materials you own and try to create a card project following the sketch offered. But really, it is a sketch, so you can create any project. Just use it as a jumping off point in your creative process and make it your own.
I often say in my workshops… “It’s your card, make it your way!” I mean it too! Have fun, create and then share it with us on the Show & Tell News. If you do share you will be entered into the End of the Month Drawing.
