CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #210

Hello crafty friends,

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Today I'm playing along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.  I was thrilled to put my newest stamps from So Suzy Stamps to use for this design -  The Ranunculus outline and Beech line leaf.  The inspiration sketch for this challenge is shown a little further down in this post.





Using the MISTI tool, I lined up the flower stamp on the edge of the cut out square (using My Favorite Things Die-namics stitched squares) so that it stamped partly on the edge as well as onto the card base underneath.  I used Color Box pigment ink in pink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I then masked the flowers with post it tape on the edge, before stamping the leaves in ColorBox dye ink in Celery.  Since the leaf has such an intricate design, I learned a light touch was best to get more of the lovely details.  I varied the pressure a bit with each one to make them look a little more unique.

I used a simple "thanks" sentiment stamp embossed in the same pink pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

After the stamping was done, I popped up the square in the center, making sure it lined up with the stamping underneath, then added a few sequins to complete.

Here is the sketch it is inspired by

 

I hope you enjoyed learning about how I put this card together.  If you'd like to keep up with my weekly posts (twice a week) please take a moment to subscribe to my blog by email or the Bloglovin' link on the right hand sidebar.
