Cas(E) this sketch! # 149

Look at me playing along with two challenges this week, I love it! I guess I can thank the weather though, it is wicked blustery outside and the rain is coming down hard. I was suppose to go for a walk with a friend but that is not going to happen.

I got a chill on Remembrance Day and I feel like I have been on the verge of a cold since, I think it is now progressing. Head ache, sore throat, sniffles. I hate being sick. So I am trying really hard for that mind over matter business and tell body it is not the time.

Anyway.. right.. card:).

Sadly I need to make another batch of Sympathy cards, I wanted something simple to pop in the mail. The challenge over at Cas(e) this sketch! was perfect.

I got this die cut for a steal at the used stamp sale last month, I though it would be nice to try. That and some arty business with the background and such.

I used distress inks with a brush to add colour, then masked off the outside and used Sheer Shimmer Spriz to added some sparkle, I stamped the sentiment then added gems. The center panel is popped up with foam tape.
Supplies: White cardstock, Paper Smooches - Salutations, misc die cuts, Spritz, gems.

Thanks for visiting,

  4. Hi Nina,

    Your sympathy cards are always so tasteful, gentle and lovely. You do add little details that finish them off perfectly.
