CAS[E] this Sketch #186

I'm seriously crushing on this week's sketch ... probably because it gave the perfect platform for the stamp set I'm currently in love with ... here's N@ Ali's sketch:

 
Pretty cool, huh?
 
That certain stamp set?  Wplus9's Happy Wishes and matching dies ... it is FULL of fun little flowers. 
 
One of my 12 Kits team-mates - Joyce Mehrberg - told me the very easiest way to die cut first, stamp second, by placing the stamp in the negative space to line it up, of course while using the fabulous MISTI.  Kudos to you, my friend!
 
For CTS #186:
 
Hero Arts Old Olive and Blush, and Rouge Altenew inks.
With just a tiny bit of added detail with a colored pencil.
OH there's that fun MFT Blueprints #18 detail again!
 
I just wanted a clean, bright home for these delicate little sweeties ... speaking of ... let's go check out the team's cards, okay? 
 
Hope to see you in the gallery with one of your own favorite sets this week!
