CAS(E) this Sketch: Thinking of You!

Happy Thursday!  I am so thrilled to be guest designing with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge this week.  

Here is the sketch!  

For my card I started with some watercolor paper.  I masked off the center portion to give me the sketch design.  Next, I combined some Ranger Distress inks with water and watercolored and splattered the design.  I removed the masking and added a few colorful splatters that show on the white portion as well. 

I die cut,white embossed, and watercolored the flowers from PTI Pretty Peonies stamp set using stampers select white.  I was impressed how this paper held up to watercoloring.  I again mixed some Ranger Distress inks for the flowers and leaves along with a few shades of PTI inks.  I used a sentiment from PTI  Mini Blooms stamp set.  I finished with some fine metallic thread and a few sequins.  

Thanks so much to CAS(E) this Sketch for having me  as a guest designer this week.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
