Water Colored Hello


Today I have a CAS card that began with a piece of cardstock swiped with several distress inks. I just took sponges and took a swipe downward until I filled in the white piece. I die cut a circle with a MFT stitched circle die, and cut  a strip and embossed it with a SU! square lattice ef. I also embossed the white card base, adding a black mat beneath the strip along with a few sequins. The "Hello" was die cut with a TE die 3 times and I glued each one on top of the other for thickness, then covered it all with some glossy accents.


                                   

Please check out the other DT members blogs for some inspiration to use this sketch too. We look forward to seeing your creations using our sketch each week.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Tuesday!

You always stunning me with your brilliant designs and just LOVE this one, so colourful, texturized and clean at the same time!!! Great idea embossing that stripe so it matches perfectly with the topper and the background! Another fabulous trick that I have learned from you, thanks :D
