Inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #250

Hello  :)! 
I hope you don't mind I'm here again... After I saw the beautiful sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #250 last week. I had some design ideas and made several cards. But I had no time to take pictures of them. Yesterday I spent all day taking pictures and editing them. So here they are (not all of them, I have a few more for another post).

I used Holiday Love Poinsettia from The Ton to stamp them on two diagonal corners of A2 sized mixed media panel in Versafine onyx black ink for watercoloring. I tried to mimic YoonSun's loose watercoloring :). I love her watercoloring style but it's so hard for me to achieve that look. A long way to go...

For the first card I colored the image in coral and red and added some light pink on the background. On the second and third card I colored the images in purple and cobalt turquoise and colored the background in cobalt turquoise. 

Here I cut the panel slightly smaller than A2 using a Double Stitched rectangle die. The large Brushed Merry sentiment from The Ton was gold heat embossed on it and the panel was glued flat on a dark red cardbase. I added the small 'Christmas' sentiment from Holiday Ornaments set, white heat embossed on a strip of dark red cardstock. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Santa's Sneezes Couture Mix from The Ton.

To make this card I cut the colored panel using Double Stitched rectangle die in A2 size and mounted it flat on a light blue cardbase. The Holiday Word die was used to cut the sentiment. I cut it once from a cardstock on which I adhered Glossy fine silver adhesive glitter paper (The Ton), and three more times from a white cardstock to stack them together. Finishing touch was some turquoise and purple sequins from Royal Garden Party, Violet Sprinkle and Blue Ice Couture Mix (The Ton).

On the next card I used a negative die cut panel to cover the background and splatters as I thought the former cards are not CAS enough to enter into CAS(E) this Sketch #250  :).

I cut the Holiday Love Poinsettia outline from a white woodgrain panel using coordinating die and foam mounted it onto the card. The sentiment is from Holiday Ballet stamp set by The Ton. I white heat embossed it on a strip of purple cardstock and foam mounted it.

Here is one more close up pic to show you the beautiful woodgrain texture!

I added yellow Pico embellisher onto the center of all poinsettias.

I'll enter the last one into CAS(E) this Sketch #250.

Thank you again! I'll share more cards I made using this sketch later today!

I love all the different colourways you have done with this pretty poinsettia stamp TaeEun and your looser watercolour painting is different from your usual style but you have managed it beautifully. x

Oh, these are all beautiful, TaeEun! Fabulous takes on the sketch!

TaeEun I LOve them both ... but I'm really partial to the purple/aqua #1 - such an unexpected, fresh combo, and a gorgeous loose coloring, and glittery sentiment!! Thanks so much... you're welcome to add more!

Bobby said...

Gorgeous poinsettia in both color ways, TaeEun. Your loose watercoloring is fabulous and the sentiments work perfectly with each card.
