CAS(E) This Sketch 90 - flower garden!

For my CASE Study post, please scroll down, or just click HERE

Hello!

I made two cards for CAS(E) This Sketch this week. I took liberties with the sketch. Big liberties, lol! I feel like I should go back and do my job properly to represent the sketch in my card. ;-) I was focused on the bottom left corner with the sentiment snuggled in there, too.

I made the first, which was definitely simple - stamp, lightly sponge, whip a water brush over some bits, add a sentiment, and it was finished!
And then I made a second, which was exactly the same, but took about ten times longer to colour.
I adore this stamp; Corner Garden by Stampin' Up! It's gorgeous in black and white, too - stay tuned for that!
I hope you are inspired to join us in this week's challenge. I'll be looking for you in the gallery!

Both cards are beautiful. I really love how vibrant the second one is and totally understand your comment of how much longer it took to color!

Both cards are GORGEOUS! I can't believe how different watercoloring gives to a card than straight up marker coloring. Absolutely stunning! Also think this is a lovely stamp set!

Michelle, I love them both! I love the softness of the first card and the bold colors of your second card and they go perfect with the sentiments you choose too.

Denise Gutshall said...

Very beautiful cards! While I love bold bright colors like the second card, I have to say I prefer the soft look with the watercolors.
