CAS(E) This Sketch #176

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #176 designed by Sam Simpson :

 
For me, this was one of those cards that started off in one way and ended up going
in a different direction -- but I was still happy with how it turned out.
 

I started by using a stencil to apply versamark to my aqua mist cardstock and 
heat embossed it in white.
I diecut the PTI Picket Fence from watercolour paper as well as the Altenew Painted Florals
die cuts, which I stamped with their coordinating stamps in black.
I coloured them in with Zig markers, water and my paintbrush.


I stamped the bird (from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus) and fussy cut it out by hand,
after colouring it with Zigs,  water and a paintbrush.

 
I stamped the sentiment (from Altenew's Best Mom) in versamark onto a strip of 
black cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
 
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, June 16th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Such a pretty card, Leigh. Love that white embossing on the pretty aqua paper. Those flowers and the bird in their pretty purples are the perfect contrast to the aqua. Really a delightful card. Bev
