CAS(E) This Sketch....



Whew, I am running a bit late getting my card ready for the challenge this week at CAS(E) This Sketch but not too late, thankfully!  I enjoy their sketches and they stretch my imagination.


I did a wash treatment with distress inks on watercolor paper which I can't wait to try again...love the effect it gave. I cut a square and using stamps from Inkadinado's set "Special Thoughts" and Fiskers " Squarely Sentimental" I created the focal image. Punching the small block with my 3/4" square and popping it up with foam dots gave it some dimension. Love the watercolor effect I got with these stamps and inks.


Not wanting to waste anything, lol, I used the leftover strip from my original wash treatment to decorate the inside. Since my sentiment can be used for any occasion I decided to leave the inside blank and wait to stamp one there when I send it out.



Hope you can find time to visit CAS(E) This Sketch and take a look, think you will like what you see.  Hope your week is starting out great!
