CAS(E) This Sketch 175

Thursday, June 2, 2016

I got some new stamps in the mail the other day and was anxious to fire them up with the newest challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.  This very awesome sketch is designed by Hannelie.

I used my Clarity Stencil Brushes with a stencil to brush on some color behind the sentiments.  I am so glad that I found these brushes because compared to sponging, it is SO much easier to put down even, consistent color.  No spongey-swirl marks here!

The colors for my card come from this gorgeous palette at Fab Friday.  The Blackberry Bliss is really dark on the card stock I used and looks almost black here but I assure you it is that deep, rich blackberry color we all know and love!

Thanks for stopping by!  And don't forget to check out the amazing inspiration from the CAS(E) This Sketch design team this week.  Those gals will knock your socks off!

Stamps:  Awesome (Neat & Tangled)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir)
Ink:  Hello Honey, Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss (SU)
Accessories:  Chevron Pattern stencil (Simon Says Stamp)
