Case this Sketch 246

Hi there,
I am having a lovely crafty afternoon.  This card was inspired by the image at Case this Sketch, and a card by Lin, that can be found here.  I loved that she created her own stencil. 

 

I recently sent some leaf die cuts to Greta, and I kept the paper with all the lovely cuts -- it's bristol paper so it works great for a sponging stencil.



I took a bit of license with the sketch...my background colors are more contained...not loose watercoloring - but I feel sure you can still see the sketch.

Oxide inks,  Lawn Fawns stitched leaves (both sets), clear sequins and some versafine ink were my supplies for this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow--a winner for sure, my friend! So creative & beautiful--love that you kept the leaves white & have the color in the background! Thank you for all the wonderful die cuts--just got them today. I'm going to have so much fun using them--just need my brain to sort out the million ideas running through it--haha!

I think your stenciling made for a perfect interpretation of the loosey watercolor! Wonderful!
