CAS(E) this Sketch! 35

(Note:  Please click here or scroll down for Avery Elle's July Inspiration Blog Hop) 


 CAS(E) this Sketch 35 by Chrissy Larson is a fun one!


And here's my take on it.


I went totally literal--again!--and a little inky in the process.
I used the brush stroke stamp from Hero Arts and the Maya Angelou sentiment
is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.

And see those splats? They were made with a Hero Arts ink dauber! 
I accidentally dropped the dauber and noticed the "splat" that was formed.
I tested different heights and got these results:


The higher you hold the dauber and "stamp" your surface, the bigger the splat.
I have more plans for those splats but first I need more ink dauber colors!

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the design team
interpreted the sketch and join us.
You have until Thursday, July 11th to link your card.

Thanks for stopping by...and let me know if you try out some splats.

  8. First, adore that sentiment!!! Second, adore your fun and literal interpretation, Donna!

    Then, LOL, how fun that you made this happy splat discovery on accident! At first I thought you meant those tiny finger daubers and I was thinking, "How ...?" and "Wow, her ink must really be juicy." And then I noticed your supply list with the HA paint daubers, so now I get it. Thank you for doing that supply list!

    I simply must go buy a bunch of these, not so much for splatting (altho I'll also be doing that!), but for the twinks. I had an old similar type of "dotter" that they loved until it ran out of ink and I couldn't find anything similar online anywhere. So, big hugs from Adam and Henry - and me - for this info!!
