When I first saw the latest CAS(E) This Sketch I said to myself "uh-oh." The background seemed (to me, anyway) perfect for some splashly watercolors - just the thing I am horrible at doing. But since I'm a good card-maker who likes to prepare for all eventualities I had some stamps in my stash that mimiced a watercolor background and I was good to go!
My faux watercolor background in shades of blue plus the leaves done in the colors of autumn fit perfectly with the latest Fusion challenge and Addicted to CAS challenge. I've been experimenting with some alcohol inks to create interesting backgrounds and the colors of the leaves here were made with some classic colors of autumn plus a bit of gold to liven things up. The sentiment was created by stacking several layers of a die cut. This looks pretty good to my eye!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you can check out the CAS(E) This Sketches design team for some inspiration this week.
