CAS(E) this Sketch #99 and Color me...! Card Challenge #45.

Good evening!

This is my entry to the CAS(E) this Sketch #99 and
Color me...! Card Challenge #45.

This card got Honourable Mention at the Color me...!
and was also one of CTS Favourites.

This card is made for the CAS(E) this Sketch #99- challenge and for the Color me...! Card Challenge #45. The wonderful guest designer this week at CTS is Kelly Latevola, whose blog is just full of inspiration, good use of colours and amazing colouring! So, I wanted to create something inspired by her designs. At Color me...! there is this Real Red Monochromatic theme this week. 

The flowers are Persian Motifs from Altenew. I watercoloured them with Distress Inks: Fried Brick and Black Soot. For the sentiment and for the background I ink them with Versafine Onyx Black and then embossed it with Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder. 

Here are challenges' graphics:


Thank you for stopping today. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Wow, I love everything about it. The simplicity, the shading, the splatters and that it's only partly colored.
    Love

  12. Marika, you made my jaw drop and drop hard! This isn't just stunning, it's breathtaking! What a creative way of using the stamps and what an amazing job you did on the coloring (I struggled so much watercoloring these beauties, so I can appreciate the amazing job you did).

    Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!

  13. Hey Marika,

    Thanks for hopping over to my blog to leave a comment! I'm not sure what the etiquette is when wanting to have a conversation about something … it seems that posting comments on the other person's blog is the way to go … I find it hilarious :)

    Anyhow, I just had to chuckle when I read how horrified you were about how badly one can mess up with this stamp set. Same here. I literally thought I couldn't possible mess this up because the stamps are so pretty, but I had the same OMG moment as you. Looking through your past posts, I see that you've "mastered" this stamp pretty well. I think I need to CAS one of your cards, you really make me want to get this stamp out again.
