A Cup of Tea for CAS(E) this Sketch.....

Hello everyone: I have another CAS card to share with you today.  I'm enjoying participating in this challenges, I'm getting more comfortable now leaving lots of white space and just concentrating on my main image. Here is the card I made for
CAS(E) this Sketch!
The image is from an old Flourishes stamp set called "Grab a Cup", this company is sadly gone so I truly treasure all of my stamp sets I collected from them.  I colored the image with my Stampin Up! markers, I love how they blend beautifully with the Aqua Painter. I stamped this pretty tea cup with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Canson Canva water color paper, this paper has a texture that looks like canvas, I really like it, and it's a tad lighter in color than the regular Canson paper. Here is a close up so you can see the texture.
The sentiment is from the same set. I hope you like this CAS card, please leave me your comments, I love reading them, they always make me smile. My grandkids think I'm famous, LOL!!
Here is the sketch that inspired this card. Thank you so much for visiting. Till next time, keep on stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
 
What I used to create this card:

Inks: Stazon Jet Black, SU markers in Marina Mist, Rich Razleberry, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, River Rock and Soft Suede.
Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Die Fleur de Lis Square Dies

  4. Just thought I would come and have a look at your blog after your lovely comment at mine. Wow love love this card, so beautiful. I can understand why your grandkids think you are famous. Also you asked me the name of the die I used -Memory-Box-Party-Music-Die 98757. I did a card earlier on using the die and a circle die together and that looks really pretty too, if you want to check it out.

    1. Hello Celeste, I always save the negative of shape dies, I try to cut the card stock in such a way that I can use the negative later. Thank you for visiting.
