CAS(E) this Sketch #107


Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #107 by N@ Ali:


For my card, I decided to to some inking on my background.



After stamping my SSS sentiment in versa mark and heat embossing it in white,
I started with tropical teal at the top and continued with hawaiian shores and aqua mist as I went
further down my panel.
I diecut three Papertrey Ink clouds. 
I had planned on just adhering the clouds, but they didn't want to adhere nicely to the inked panel,
so I ended up diecutting a large one from the inked panel, removing it and inlaying a white one in its place.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, January 29th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
