CAS(E) This Sketch

I'm playing along with the newest CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. After watching Kristina Werner's tutorial recently on distress oxide ink blending, I went with a trio of inks that are really different from my normal style but I'm finding that I'm really drawn to this combination: Old Paper, Evergreen Bough and Black Soot!
Once those inks were dry, I white embossed with Altenew's Pure White embossing powder using the Ornate Background stamp by Simon Says Stamp.

I used these same 3 inks for all of the images and sentiment - stamping off once for a couple of the layers on the bird (Wren and Robin by The Greetery). The branches were stenciled using a couple of the Mason Jar Fillers stencils by The Greetery. The sentiment is from The Greetery's Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You set.  The white panel is a die cut - Stitched Rounded Rectangles STAX - by My Favorite Things. The alcohol ink panel was die cut with The Greetery's Crimped Frame die.

I'm thinking this is not quite as clean and simple as it should be - haha - but it follows the sketch so I'm going with it!
