I love this week's CAS(E) this sketch but as my last card using it wasn't very CAS I thought I'd give it another go. Distress inks are so much fun, whether they be markers or pads! A surprise bundle of joy is on the way in our extended family later in the year, so I thought I'd spread a little cheer.
I've used Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil with translucent paste for the stars and these are my dots for the Lawnscaping Challenge.
I've embossed the images to make watercolouring easier and the sentiment for a bit of sparkle. More embossing for Virginia's View Challenge- love this technique!
