CAS(E) This Sketch 190


This week's sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch! calls for a split sentiment. I partially inked up my sentiment stamp and stamped the two halves on either side of my flower. It was a bit fiddly to achieve, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
I used Altenew Beautiful Day stamps and Altenew inks. I stamped the flower first and then masked and stamped the foliage and sentiment. I just love how much dimension I can create with these stamps on a one-layer card.
I'm also linking up over at Altenew's Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop for two reasons: 1. CAS(E) This Sketch is one of the featured blogs (way to go, Chrissy!) and 2. I love Altenew and any excuse to use these beautiful stamps is a good one. ;-)

I hope you join us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week. I can't wait to see what you all come up with using this fabulous sketch.

Thank-you for dropping by!

Those Altenew flower stamps are works of art, aren't they? I love how you've made the colorful flower take center stage and split up the sentiment around it. Beautiful card!
