CAS(E) this Sketch #61

Congratulations

Hey everybody,

One day with out a post and I feel as though it has been a long time. I am crafting and making cards but cannot share them yet. They are made of gorgeous new products. You will love them.

Anyway, here is our new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog.
This sketch is by Julie Day.


Here is my take on the sketch.

Congratulations closeup!

The background is pattern paper from Studio Calico. With the panel, I brushed the cardstock with gesso lightly not covering the entire cardstock. Then I sponged distress inks, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry. The result is amazing! I then die cut those flowers in black cardstock and layered them. I coloured the edges of the layered die cut with Tea Dye distress marker and went over with a wet brush to blend the colour. Finally added heavy shimmer on the die cuts. This gave a gorgeous aged metal look against the beautiful bright background. The sentiment is from Hey There stamp set from Studio Calico.

Check out CAS(E) this Sketch Blog for more design team inspiration using this sketch.
Come and play along this new sketch.
