CAS(E) This Sketch 212

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Hey there!  We've got a brand new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch to introduce to you this fine day.  It's pretty awesome and I'm also pretty sure that you are going to love it!

The other day on my Facebook feed a video popped up about stamping a plaid background.  It reminded me that I used to create my own plaid backgrounds with post-it tapes and lots of sponged colors.  This sketch seemed perfect for that technique so, inspired by the colors at Sunday Stamps, I sat down at my desk and spent a relaxing time swirling color around on my card front.

I added a bold sentiment (with a few cat hairs interfering for good measure) and I was done!  I'm pleased with how this came out and I think I can use this for that oh-so-difficult man-card!  A birthday sentiment on the inside would be perfect.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the cards that our amazing CAS(E) This Sketch design team has made for this challenge.  You're going to love them!

At first I thought, "What a great piece of plaid designer paper, I wonder who makes it?!" Then I finished reading.... Dang girl!! This is the coolest color combination and the most perfectly created plaid ever. I LOVE THIS! I keep stopping commenting and going back and sneaking peeks at your card. It's brilliant. You're brilliant. I'll stop now, but WOW!!! Bev
