CAS(E) this Sketch #232

 I am entering this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #232.  I love this weeks sketch!  Here is my card.

I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, called Fingerprint Doodles.  As soon as I saw this set I thought it was the cutest and you could use it in so many ways.   I blended Distress Oxide Broken China, on the card front.   I held off buying the Distress Oxides, but then I caved and got the first release of 12 colors which are wonderful! I masked off the stamping area with Post It tape and then stamped the fingerprint stamps in various SSS inks and then the animals in Versafine black. I did add subtle highlights to the animals with a black glaze pen and copic markers.   The sentiment is from the stamp set and it is heat embossed on black card stock.

Here is this week's sketch:

CASology is having a blog hop and giveaways for their 5th Anniversary.  Here is a link if you want to do the bloghop. Click here

The challenge is a card featuring balloons.  I adore these stamp sets from Ellen Hutson Essentials and made this card for the challenge.

Stamp sets used are All Inside and  Bear Wear.  I used copics to color.  After coloring the balloon I applied glossy accents  for some shine.

 Thanks for stopping by, see  you soon.......

CAS(E) this Sketch #229

I have been making a lot of cards lately, just haven't had time to post them to this blog! :)    I decided to enter the CAS(E) this Sketch #229 challenge this week.

I watercolored the background using Distress Inks.  I just smooshed ink onto my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and then laid the watercolor paper over the ink and moved it around.  I like the results a lot. I used an SSS die, that I have had for a few years but I love this die for all the possibilities it has.  I die cut a bunch of circles from different patterned papers using the die and then inlaid them inside the die frame.  I stamped the sentiment with an Avery Elle stamp set, Shine Bright Clear.  I love this stamp set and have used it a lot so far this summer.

Here is the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by, see you later....
