CAS[E] this Sketch #217

Chrissy Larson has proven that the Sketch is a starting point to creating something only your mind, and your own imagination sees there ... take a peek:


Guess what my mind saw?  Carrots!  You don't see them?  Them me harvest a few for you...

Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, and Versafine inks on watercolor paper

I'm using the carrot image, and one the awesome sentiment stamps, from Altenew's Farmers Market set ... and I cannot wait to get that artichoke inked up!!!  These guys have been patiently waiting to play cards for weeks!

I'm dying to hop over to the CTS blog to see where the minds of my teamies wandered this week - you'll join us, right?

Woo hooo! These are 24-karat carrots indeed! I have this set and it needs some attention! You've spurred me to do so! Excited to see your 'artichoke dip'...because I'll likely case it! *grin*
Hugs and love,

Lucky you added your card cause I couldnt see carrots till I saw your card, then I squinted reall hard and could see the carrots :) It will be interesting to see the different interpretations to this one.

I actually saw Woody Woodpecker's topknot when I first looked at the sketch but carrots will do. Wait until you see what I did.
