Holy smokes – I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I posted on my blog!! Where the heck did this month go?! I hope that you had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday. No doubt you’re fully engrossed in the holidays now! I’m really struggling with the fact that Christmas is less than 30 days away . . . eeek!!
So, I’m back today with the latest CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Are you all enjoying these sketches as much as I am?!! OH EM GEE!! So fun, right?! This week’s sketch was designed by Jackie Rockwell – those clean lines just make me swoon!
I decided to go with the whimsical look – and kept it VERY clean and simple. I love the look of mixing designer papers, but I struggle with doing it, especially when I’m trying to stay CAS. However, I’ve found that if I stick to the smaller prints, and use the simplest of the patterns as my focal panel, it’s more appealing to the eye – more balanced. So that’s what I’ve done here. This could so very easily be mass produced for holiday cards . . . maybe I should get on that, huh?! LOL
STAMPS: Winter Wishes (W Plus 9 Designs)
INK: Black Dye Ink (Hero Arts/Memento)
PAPER: Merry & Bright 6 x 6 DP (Carta Bella), Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest)
