CAS(E) This Sketch 268

Thursday, April 19, 2018

It's time for another sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch!  I'm not afraid to tell you that this sketch had me stumped at first.  I tried a couple of different versions before I settled on this one.

I wish that I had angled my little watercolored panel a bit to mimic the sketch but that didn't occur to me until after I cut it!  And if you could see the previous versions I came up with you would understand that I just wanted to make a card that was pleasing to the eye and basically followed the sketch.  In my eye this one did the trick so I went with it!  And I know that the sentiment is in the wrong direction BUT I wanted to keep it within the layer on the side (a-la the sketch) and the only way I could do that was to turn it so that is was vertical.  At Creative With Stamps they are celebrating 2 years with a challenge that is CAS with a sentiment.  I think this fits the bill!
