Thank You!

Happy Sunday!  I got some new Papertrey Ink goodies in the mail yesterday and finally got some time to get inky.  I am playing along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.

On a split second decision....pun intended....I decided to add this PTI Split: Thank You set and coordinating die into my shopping cart.  As soon as I saw this week's sketch, I just knew this image would work perfectly.

I started with some watercolor paper.  I sponged some Tumbled Glass and Broken China inks.  I spritzed some water for water splatters.  I die cut, inked and watercolored the focal image.  I used wilted violet for flowers and twisted citron and mowed lawn for the leaves.  I love my free flowing watercoloring which I think adds to the whimsical look.

I turned the image at an angle and clipped off a little touch of the side edge to comply with sketch detail. I added some wink of stella to the purple flowers for some added shimmer.  I finished the card with some loose threading and Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.

As always thank so much for stopping by!
