CAS(E) This Sketch




I'm loving the new layout by Donna Mikasa for the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge! I wanted to pop a color against a trio of black patterned papers and went with a sunny yellow that will make you want to grab your shades!  I didn't have a bright yellow button, so I went with a button die from MFT, layered up 3 cuts then added Glossy Accents over the top.  This Spring Flowers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp is probably my current favorite set of florals!  I love to emboss with white (Altenew Pure White Opaque EP) then color with Zig Clean Color brush markers!  The matching dies (Floral Shapes wafer dies by SSS) make it so easy and you don't have to stay inside the lines since it's all die cut!  The sentiment is from SSS Uplifting Thoughts stamp set.

ZIGS: 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow, 052 Bright Yellow, 053 Yellow Green, 046 Mid Green, 043 Olive Green.
PAPER: Bazzill 'Licorice' Basics Patterned Paper; Ranger watercolor cardstock; Yoyo Yellow (retired SU).
