CASE this sketch 70 Heather Telford

Playing along with CAS(E) this sketch is getting to be a habit but I am not just playing along this week; I am privileged to be the guest designer for sketch #70



Seems like this sketch was made just for me. You won’t have to look far through my blog before you spy one or two layouts along the same lines. I pulled out an old favourite from my stamp collection and paired it with my new favourite technique, flicking watercolour paint! I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace first in a mix of Memento Cottage Ivy ink and Peeled Paint Distress stain. Next I positioned post-it notes as masks to create the central square and flicked colour from three different watercolour pencils with a water brush. Finally I removed the masks and added the sentiment.

Make sure you visit the CAS(E) this sketch challenge blog to see all the wonderful creations from the design team.

    Heather – this just took my breath away when I opened up your blog. I love visiting your blog. So much inspiration and such beautiful cards. Is the Queen Anne’s Lace one stamp? Are the “weeds” on the bottom a separate stamp? And, it looks like the Queen Anne’s Lace is no longer available at PB? Thanks.

      Hi Julie,
      The Queen Anne’s Lace is one stamp but it is an “oldie” so it might not be available any more. The “weeds” on the bottom are not a stamp at all; I created them by flicking a lot of colour from watercolour pencils onto the panel.
