CAS(E) This Sketch #73


Welcome to Week 73 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  This week we have an exciting twist on our sketch challenge. We've teamed up with the gals over at Runway Inspired Challenge so as well as the sketch we have a fabulous fashion photo for inspiration!


I really really struggled with this challenge.  Between the sketch and the photo there are a lot of different elements going on.  How was I going to keep my design CAS?  (This IS the CAS Case This Sketch challenge after all).  I'm not sure I entirely succeeded in my efforts but in the end I ran out of time and had to go with what I had.  I took a very liberal approach to the sketch.  The white panel on my card represents the sketch which I turned 90 degrees to the left.  The sentiment represents the dark half circle on the bottom and the flowers are… well, the flowers!  Then I "framed" the sketch on Island Indigo cardstock.  The colours were pulled from the model's shirt.  I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone else's take on this challenge.  I know there will be lots of, "Why didn't I think of that?" moments but that's what I love about this bloggie world of ours - so much talent and inspiration!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White Watercolour) Mead, (Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Water Blooms) Mama Elephant, (Sentiment from Think Big Favourites #12) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

I can see where this would take some thought but your card turned out beautifully.

Oh my goodness...you are being hard on yourself. This is gorgeous Jen. I immediately knew that you flipped the sketch. Love the amazing stamping!

Your card is stunning! I love those blooms! And yep, the 'why didn't I think of that?' moments are a large part of the fun :)
