CAS(E) This Sketch #17 & MUSE #6

Hello, friends!  I am so happy to see this very busy week winding down...the craziness of early spring activities is upon us here at our house!  (Yikes!)  However, I was able to sneak in some crafty time and I made a quick card for two challenges.

I followed the sketch from the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #17:


I used the pretty Muse Challenge #6 cue card made by Deanna Jean for inspiration, following the flower and leaf layout above the sentiment.



I love my Hero Arts shadow block stamps (oldies but goodies!) and immediately thought of this one when I saw the sketch.  I used the stamp "kissing" technique to add the envelope pattern to the shadow blocks.

Materials Used:
Stamps: Hero Arts "Irregular Background Blocks," "Envelope Pattern,"
"Blossom Art," "Birthday Messages"
Inks: Hero Arts Poppy chalk in, black dye ink, VersaMark and black embossing powder
Other: black gems, patterned papers, corner rounder

So, that's it for today.  As always, thanks for stopping by...I do appreciate your visit!

  3. Fabulous background stamping, Judy, so crisp and precise (I was so taken with it I took a really close look!) ... a perfect backdrop to the lovely dramatic, embossed and bling-enhanced bloom! Anita :)
