Cas(e) this sketch #120

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #120 designed by Gayatri Murali:



I love the bird image on the sketch and the fun splatter behind him, 
so I decided to copy this for my card.

CAS(E) This Sketch #120 Leigh Penner #cards

To create my background, I pressed some summer sunrise ink onto my acrylic block.
spritzed it with water and pressed my yardstick onto it.
Once it was dry, I added the diecut leaves from vellum and bird from berry sorbet
and aqua mist cardstock (both dies are from PTI's Songbirds.)
Then I stamped the sentiment in versafine onyx black (also from Songbirds).

I'm also linking this up to this week's
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Clean & Simple.

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, April 30th to link up your card.

Oh, and before you go, I also have a fun card up on the 
Reverse Confetti Blog today for the Confetti Camera series: Everything Old is New Again!  
I'd love for you to check it out!  


Thanks for looking!

Such pretty elements and techniques showcased here, Leigh! I'm still trying to figure out how to approach this challenge, since water-colouring is on my "not do' list. You've certainly sparked some ideas...
