CAS(E) this Sketch 86


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 86 brought to you by Sam.


And here's my take on it.


I turned the sketch 90 degrees and simplified it a bit.
The butterfly was die cut from a scrap piece of smooshed watercolored cardstock
and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant. The card was finished off with gold spatter.

Tag You're It!--Challenge #2

It's time for Challenge #2 at Tag You're It! and our awesome guest designer
is Ms. Doublestick Heaven--Laura Bassen! Check out her tag:



And here is mine.


I was inspired by the colors and the different die cuts on her tag.
I white embossed Hero Arts' Graph Background and ink distressed with two colors
of Distress inks on white cardstock.


The tag shape is a Sizzix Round Tag, and the leaf is from WPlus9.
The two part sentiment is by Papertrey Ink and Winnie & Walter.

Visit the Tag You're It! Challenge blog to see how Laura's tag inspired the rest
of my teammates, and join us with your project.

CAS(E) this Sketch 85


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 85 by N@Ali.


And here's my take on it.


I was tempted to use a butterfly, but reached for Altenew's Hennah Elements.
The flower and flourishes were stamped with Archival ink
and colored in with Peerless Watercolors.
The sentiment is from the same set.

CAS(E) this Sketch 84


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 84 brought to you by Chrissy.


And here's my take on it.


I finally inked up Altenew's Painted Flowers. It's such a cool "building" set and Tasnim 
has a wonderful video on how to stamp the different layers. But I'm impatient
so I simply stamped the outline of each flower and leaf and did some quick watercoloring. 
Quick and easy peasy.

The dymo label sentiment is also from Altenew, stamped in Delicata Gold.
I added some filler dots with a couple of green Copic markers.
