CAS(E) this sketch..#59.

 

 On Saturday I received a beautiful card from Donna in Hawaii and inside was a lovely little packet of die cut feathers in some stunning colours, some dyed, some Patterned paper... and as soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to use them for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I finally got around to doing a card today after I got back from my walk... Love CAS cards as they really come together so quickly.  


This is a mini card... 3.25" x 4.25".  The centre panel is a die cut from Poppy Stamps that is 3" x 4".  I added the gorgeous feathers with a pop dot.  Added a button with a little bit of pink ribbon.  As you can see I stuck to the sketch fairly closely.  I finished with some splotches of Picked Raspberry distress ink, watered down and flickered off my paint brush.  The sentiment is from an older Hero Arts set.  This has also been entered into the CASology challenge ~ Dots

Edited: Thanks to Cornelia I have entered into the challenge over at STAMPlorations Blog

I've been doing some mixed media pieces but they just take SOOOO long to do...waiting, waiting, waiting for gesso, paint and paste to dry.  Still the end result is lovely.  Just trying to decide how to and what to put on a card.  Also started an 8" x 8" canvas.  

Thanks for stopping by.
