CAS(E) This Sketch #123

Sometime sketch challenges can be difficult but this one from CAS(E) This Sketch is a great one.


There is so much inspiration from the design team and those that have already posted to the gallery.  Why not go check them out.  But not before you see my card.


The flower from Winnie and Walter is watercolored with Distress Ink.  I embossed some vellum with a border folder, added the Hero Arts sentiment embossed in silver, then put it all on Fog cs from SSS.  I also used a trick from Loll from Stamping with Loll to curve the images. You can see her video here.  I don't have a stylus big enough so I used the end of a paintbrush which worked just fine, although I will be buying a bigger stylus. :)

Edited to add:  At the urging of Carol Mayne, I'm also entering this card over at the Uniko Studios May Challenge - Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Oh my...swooning is usually reserved for butterfly cards, but in the case of this stunning beauty you've created, it's happening right. now! Gorgeous hydrangea, marvelous use of vellum (which I love on other people's cards!) and the oh-so-pretty whisper of embossing. LOVE this!
