Case this Sketch #323

August 7, 2017

Sometimes when your mojo just kind of goes quiet, I find that playing along with a sketch challenge will get me going again.  Today I decided to play along with the Case This Sketch challenge.  It was a very simple sketch leaving lots of room for creativity.  I stamped Whisper White card using the leaf image from the Butterfly Basics stampset using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I stamped several times and sometimes without re-inking.  I stamped the flower image from the same stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using a Blender Pen and Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight inks.  I cut out the image and attached it over the stamped leaves.  I used the border die from the Swirly Bird Framelit Dies to cut Soft Suede card, I only wanted to create a semi-rounded edge for the bottom of my card.  I embossed the card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder before attaching it to the bottom of the stamped card.  I stamped the long border image onto a strip of scrap Whisper white card using Wisteria Wonder ink.  I hand cut it to create a narrow border which I attached to the card front to the right of the flower image.  The border is trimmed to match the edge of the stamped Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto the card front using Soft Suede ink.  The Whisper White panel is attached to Pear Pizzazz card and then scored and folded Soft Suede card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the border image twice across the bottom of Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I am pretty happy with this card and I am very happy to have used this stamp set once more.  It is one of my favourites but neglected lately for some newer ones.  So thanks to Case This Sketch for some great inspiration.

Bye for now,
