CAS[E] this Sketch #248

Chrissy Larson has 20/20 vision for Sketch design, don't you think... let me show you what she's gifted us for the next TWO weeks!  Yes, it is a two week long challenge so we can gather together with our families to give thanks!


I have another little new-to-me Penny Black stamp ... she wanted to play cards with us today:




Please don't even start to give me credit for my water coloring, I must tell you that the Penny Black folks give us very beautiful graphics on their packaging - I simply followed their lead, the best I could.  I started with Zigs, came in with a bit of Fossilized Amber Oxide ink for the bauble, with a splash of Gansai Tambi gold mixed in.  Finished her off with a sprinkling of Stickles! 

Voila!  Another Christmas card done:  check!

It's time I invite you to the CAS[E] this Sketch blog -   BUT I really want to say how grateful I am for all of you that visit, comment - making this journey with me... thank you - I wouldn't, couldn't do it without your support! 

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Penny Black may have given you the 'lead' but you did the colouring my friend and it's AmAzinG!

You may have had the packaging as a guide for the colouring, Michele, but this little darling is all your own! She's adorable with those touches of shimmery gold and her glittery wings ... and of course, tu sais que j'adore ce sentiment! Calins, Anita :)
