CAS(E) This Sketch #155

The sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch was a doozy this week.  What would you do with this?
I'm trying to think more "out-of-the-box" and so no paper cutting for me.  I found an image that would work just fine, thank you.
The branch, and the flowers, are from Altenew's Vintage Flowers.  I'm still having a difficult time coming up with inks I like for layered flowers so on this one I used a pale pink Zig for the flowers and over stamped them in white to soften the color.  I also used a Zig for the leaves.  Maybe I should have over stamped them too.

While a lot of Michigan got dumped on yesterday, we here in the middle of the state got a reprieve from any more snow.  There has been a lot of crazy weather around the country.  I hope all you loyal readers are safe and secure wherever you live.

  3. That sketch sure was a doozy, wasn't it? When I first saw it, I had to think about it for a few days before something came to me. That being said, I love what you did - your card is a gorgeous CAS OLC piece of art! Gives us all hope that spring is coming - once we get this little thing called winter over (two more months or so, right)? :)

  7. I've been scratching my head about that sketch too, Bobbby, although I finally came up with a card. I love your take on it - so gorgeously clean and crisp. I have to remember the white overstepping technique - I love how it softens the flowers but still gives them some depth.

  10. Not much snow here in SE WI, but plenty of cold now. However, it is January, and since I live where I live, I shouldn't complain too much. Your card is really lovely. That's a hard sketch to work with, and you've nailed it down tight. Those branches and flowers are so pretty, and I'll have to remember the white over stamping. Beautiful card. Bev

  14. You've de-doozified (my new word of the day) this sketch, Bobby, with your pretty branch of blossoms and leaves. A soft, delicate sympathy card...Winner, winner in my books!
