CAS(E) This Sketch #59

Hello Everyone,
This week I am playing along with CAS(E) this sketch. I was really intrigued by this week's sketch - ti is very minimalist and really had me thinking. At first I couldn't come up with anything and then I ended up with two cards! Funny how that happens - I will post them separately so that I can link up both cards.

So this is the first card that I came up with. I was at Heather's Stamping Haven here in Ottawa - my favourite local craft/stamping store and I bought two new sets from Penny Black. I used Heart Swatches on this card. I love all the images in this set, but this tall narrow heart made me think of the feathers in the sketch. I inked it up in Bubble Gum Shadow Ink and then masked it and stamped again in Red Royal Shadow ink. The sentiment is from the other new set I bought: From the Heart. I felt the hearts were blending into each other too much, so I outlined them with my Copic fine liner. I like the result - a very simple valentine. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping,


  1. Brilliant! These hearts work perfectly and I love the flower pattern on them! Thanks for playing along again with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. Lovely card! Super sweet take on the sketch!

  3. Love your new Penny Black goodies! Such pretty patterns on the hearts!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
