Thanks from all of us!

I really liked this week's sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and so I played along….

I began by simply "smooshing" a watercolour background onto Ranger watercolor cardstock using pinks and yellow re-inkers and setting it aside to dry.  I decided to buy the 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock and cut it into quarters - it saves a bit of money and that's a good thing….

I die cut the Simon Says Stamp "thanks" sentiment from Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz cardstock and then actually HANDCUT a piece of white cardstock with my paper trimmer and stamped the sentiment (from Mama Elephant Photobomb).

So weird…..I looked for a die that would cut a piece of white cardstock and nearly panicked when I couldn't find the size of die that I wanted…..soooo dependent on those dang dies….. haha!

Using my "smooshed" background, I die cut the Single Roses Wafer Die - I had not even separated the dies yet, but I thought it looked great.  I only used the positive part of the die cut - (at least I think - I was never too good with my positives and negatives) I will save the positive (?) die cuts for another project.

I die cut my background cardstock with Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a white card panel.

I adhered my two sentiments together,  popped it up onto the background and adhered it to a Raspberry Fizz cardstock base.

Okay that is all for today - Thanks for coming around!
