CAS(E) This Sketch #65


Welcome to Week 65 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  Take a look at this week's sketch by Sam Simpson:



When I saw Sam's sketch I immediately thought of the Paper Smooches Crystal Clear set.  I love the sweet and simple vases and flowers!  I kept a simple colour palette and did some more embossing on vellum.  Why was I so afraid of this before?  It gives such a lovely soft look!  Anyway be sure to take a gander at all the yummy DT creations and then play along with us!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple) Stampin' Up
Vellum:  Strathmore
Stamps:  (Leaves & flowers from Crystal Clear, Sentiment from Healthy Vibes) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Primrose Petals, Gumball Green) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Dies:  (Crystal Clear 3) Paper Smooches
Gems:  Recollections

This is a cute one! I have to start thinking what I want to put inside a little jar! Love that you used little vases in place of the jars Jen.

Lucky you to have a stamp set that fit the challenge perfectly. Love the colors and the embossed vellum.

I love that you kept the colours simple, simple and dramatic. I am also scared of vellum and don't have any...will need to rectify that soon!

Embossing on vellum can go wrong fast, that's why :) All it takes is that one 'oh, just one extra blast' and next thing you know....it takes time to be comfortable with how to do it. Or a desire to see firemen, whatever :P
I love the colours you've used - the green leaves are like my favourite ever green!
