CAS(E) This Sketch #177

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #177 designed by me :

I was also inspired by the Altenew June Inspiration Challenge
to use Altenew's Best Mom stamp set to make my card:
photo inspiration challenge_June_2
Isn't it beautiful?
Here's my card:
I started by stamping the image from Best Mom in Altenew Dark
Chocolate ink, then again in versamark so I could heat emboss it in clear.
Using ink (PTI's Bright Buttercup, Harvest Gold, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss & Ocean Tides)
pressed onto my acrylic block, water and a paintbrush, I coloured them in.
I went out of the lines on one of the leaves and then decided to make it work
by going outside of the lines on a bunch of them, for a messier, watercolour look.
I stamped my sentiment from PTI's Spring Woods
in dark chocolate and heat embossed it as well.
A few rainstones finish it off.
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 23rd to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
