CAS(E) This Sketch #50


Welcome to Week 50 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  Take a look at this week's sketch by Chrissy Larson:


I can't believe we're already at CTS #50!!  I joined the CTS team with Sketch #5 last November.  I was so nervous because I had always struggled with sketch challenges but after almost a year of being forced to use them I have overcome my "Sketch Allergy" and fear them no longer!  Dare I say it but I even enjoy them now.  :D  This week's sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to break out my Circle Burst die.  Actually all three of these dies are seeing the light of day for the first time so this is a real NBUS card.  I also used the colours from Dynamic Duos for my palette.  I can't wait to see how this sketch inspires you so check out the creations by the rest of the CAS(E) This Sketch design team and then get creating!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from You Said It Sister) Fresh Squeezed Stamps
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Small Circle Burst, Woodland Branch, Nestled Bird) Memory Box

You are rocking the sketches! It's funny I used to like color challenges more and now find I go for the sketch challenge. This card is incredible. The die cuts are amazing!

I would never have guessed you had a phobia of sketches!! This card is stunning - I love the sunray die cut and the bird on a branch is fab. Lovely work.

Your take on the sketch is absolutely original and brilliant. I love how that bird is just perched there on the branch. It looks like he is thinking deep thoughts (like--should I use pigment or die ink today)

I'm totally with you, I used to shy from sketches and now I'm finding that (dare I say thanks CTS) now I prefer them to colour challenges (shock! horror!) ps I've got die envy, your card is amazing!
