CAN YOU CASE IT #132 A Sketch Challenge


The challenge from Can You Case It? this week is a simple sketch challenge.  I have a really hard time keeping my cards simple.  I love the look of clean and simple but it is something I need to work on.  With that being said, my card is kinda simple.

CYCI Sketch Challenge

CYCI Sketch Challenge

To begin this card, I used our Splashes, Turbo Teal, Electric Lime, to create a water colored background. When the background was dry I used our gold silk, (IP-0096) pg. 29. I stamped the image of the deer onto the colored paper.  The image of the deer came from the set Spirit Animals (SS-0355) pg.214. One of the images, and the sentiments come from our July Bloom Box.  I am not sure if you can see it in the picture but I curled our Natural Journey Twine (AC-00050) pg.311, and tied it around the flags.  I have to give a shout out to Eva Bussum for her clever idea of curling the twine.  I used our Journey Circle dies (DI-0039) with the perforation around the deer….you can see this better in the close up picture.  I finished by adding Silver Twinkle Trim (AC-0215) pg. 311, and then sprinkling a few more of them onto the card.
