CAS(E) This Sketch #170
Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been around much over the last week or so, but something hasn't agreed with my system - I won't go into detail, but I have spent far more time in the bathroom than my craft room - I think it is due to my new, 'healthy' diet, not agreeing with me!
Anywho, between times, I managed to make this card for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge which is a knockout sketch by the talented Hannelie Bester, this is the sketch.
I took a watercolour panel that I had in my drawer - I keep a drawer full of panels that I have made during 'technique try-out' sessions. This piece is what I refer to as a 'mop up piece', you know, you have some left over ink on your craft mat from a 'technique try-out' and you can't bear to just mop it up and throw it away, so you mop up with another card-stock panel instead. It has a more subtle effect than the original piece, but is perfect for CAS designs - it's hard to show the subtle shimmer and soft colours in the photographs, but is really pretty IRL.
I drew some lines on it, following the sketch, then I cut along the lines and divided the panel up. Next, I took a 'stitched edge' die and ran it along the edges of the design, but left the margin edges plain. Then I took a piece of coordinating card-stock and mounted the pieces on to it leaving gaps between the pieces. I mounted the focal panel on to a white card base.
I finished it off with a die cut 'thanks' and a heat embossed 'you' on a snippet of black card-stock and added three glitter card 'punchies' in a coordinating colour too.
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
