CASE this sketch - CAS card

Good Morning friends!

As Kripa mentioned in her post here, this fortnight the DT will play around with the same sketch to highlight how it can be interpretated in different ways. We were amazed at the variations we all created not just wrt the shapes, size & colors but techniques too!
Kripa shared this  gorgeous mixed media page & I have  a CAS card today! 

For the card I have retained the circle shape & replaced the quote with a die cut word.

Join me as I walk you through the  card making steps 

These are some of the supplies I used - 

To create a circle template for the ombre stamping, die cut a circle in a copy paper measuring the same size as the card front (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). Using masking / washi tape adhere this over the front of the card. Since I have repeat stamping of a sentiment  I marked the lines as a guide. The Tim Holtz ruler was perfect for this.

For the ombre effect I used the color box Q (misty meadow) ink pads. 

Once I was done with the stamping I carefully erased all the pencil lines. I loved the pleasant ombre effect.

 The sentiment says 'thanks for being such a great' & I wanted to add "teacher" to complete this. I stamped the word twice (the darkest inkpad in the set & archival black) & then die cut it with the coordinating die. Next I clued both the die cuts, off setting them a little so that a bit of color peeps beneath the black. Glued this with glossy accents on vellum. 

Thank you for visiting us today & remember there is time till the end of the month to link projects for Baby - a little bit of heaven here.
