CAS(E) this sketch! {Guest Designer}

Thursday, November 7, 2013

I'm so excited to be this week's guest designer for CAS(E) this sketch!
I love participating in challenges and this is one of my favorites.
A lot of masking on this card.  I used copy paper as my mask so that I could see through it.  I wanted to line up the different directions of stamped lines the best I could.
I added a strip of black cardstock where the stamping met just to keep it clean and also add clear definition between those stamped areas.

I made a second version.
Neither is perfect, but I really love the results!


Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you'll participate in this week's CAS(E) this sketch! challenge!

Cardstock: PTI White, Black
Stamps: PTI Faux Ribbon, Peaceful Pinecones
Ink: PTI Scarlet Jewel, Pure Poppy, Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Versafine Onyx
