This is my third post for today. Here is my Random card post and Winnie & Walter post.
I have a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog for you today.
This fab sketch is by Chrissy Larson.
And this is how I interpreted it.
I sat down to make the card this morning. And I had planned something geometric with some inlayed diecut. But I found, Jennifer McGurie’s video today using Peerless watercolour on her blog. So I watched the video and got inspired to try the technique. I am a bit restless today and so I was not up to colouring a smaller image. Hence I choose these large Gerbera flowers and leaves from Uniko Studio’s Pure Floral Gerbera stamp set.I have white heat embossed them on watercolour paper from Tim Holtz. Then broke open my Peerless water colour and coloured the flowers and leaves. I am intrigued by Jennifer’s use of Perfect Pearl water. I remembered I had one such pot hiding somewhere in my drawer. I found it and used it on my watercoloured flowers and leaves. Just love the shimmer it gives. Subtle and pretty. Thanks for the video, Jennifer. I love your work and your videos always and forever 🙂 Here is a close up!
For the background, I have used a wooden plank pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye. I mounted the watecoloured panel as per the sketch. I love the contrast the yellow and green against the woodgrain plant background. I wanted a sentiment which is not too big but subtle. So the nearest I could reach for was from MFT’s Typewriter stamp set lol! Finally few of the gorgeous Lemon Drop and Mossy Green sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!
Now to the sad part – saying goodbye! I am finishing my term with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog as designer. I have been with them since the start of the challenge blog. I love CAS sketches and throughly enjoyed working with Christine and team. Fabulous group of people. Thank you so much for having me, girls 🙂 Now I think there are plenty of designers out there who are talented and worthy of being the designer on the team. So you will see a newbie fab designer on the team from next month. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by today.
