CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #204; Tag You’re It Challenge #63


Hello again, blog friends ~ There's nothing like a few fun challenges to get your mojo going, right? Well, I'm back to share a few cards that I created to play along ~ The first one is CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #204 with this beautiful sketch by N@ Ali


Here is my take on the sketch:


I created a mask with the largest MB Heart die, then used several distress inks and Copic Opaque White paint with Chipped Sapphire for the splatters. I love the font on this sentiment, so I stacked it with 4 layers, and finished off the card with a few clear sequins.

***************

Karin Akesdotter is the Featured Artist for the current Tag You’re It Challenge and she has created this adorable tag to inspire us ~


And, here is my tag:


I stamped and die cut this cute little Hedgehog, and blended a few distress inks for the background. I also used Copic Opaque paint, and added the SSS bow with the sparkly enamel dot.

So, that's it for me...I hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
