CAS[E] the Sketch #158

An awesome sketch from Sam Simpson this week ... with all of the water colored cards around lately, I decided to dip in!

Here is our inspiration:


I turned it around to accommodate my wonky oval ...         
for CTS #158:

Mondo Magnolia - Julie for #Ellen Hutson; SSS hello die cut
Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet; Pumice Stone
 
My water coloring was done over top of gold heat-embossing.  I used a bit of Delicata gold stamped script  from MFT to stand in for Sam's strips [when every attempt to use washi tape failed!].
 
I don't know about you, but I am seeing no end to the inspiration from this one!  Second helpings maybe? 
 
We are excited to see your inspired creations in the gallery - always a pleasure!
