CAS(E) This Sketch #46


Welcome to Week 46 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  Take a look at this week's sketch by Karolyn Loncon:


This sketch helped pull together two challenges for me - the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and the Moxie Fab Stickers and Tape challenge.  I pulled out these sweet little Fresh Squeezed Stamps sunflowers to use but was having trouble figuring out how to work with the small image.  The layout for this week's sketch was perfect as it helped me to create a small clustered focal point.  As for the background, I have a couple of different woodgrain stamps but they just weren't working for me on this card.  Then my eye fell on my woodgrain washi tape and the lightbulb went off - it's perfect for layering on the card base!  I love it and it actually looks like a piece of patterned paper.  Maybe this sketch can help you out with a few challenges. Take a look at the rest of the amazing cards by the design team and then play along with us!

You are right - this layout is perfect for a cluster of small stamps. The sunflowers are just perfect on the washi wood and the green!

It's hard for me to believe that you used washi tape for that woodgrain background -- amazing! Sweet little sunflowers, too.

That washi tape made a perfect "fence" background for those lovely little sunflowers.
