I'm Guest Designing at CAS(E) this sketch!!!

Hi all!  This week I'm Guest Designing at CAS(E) this sketch - CTS #102.  I was SO excited when I saw the email from Chrissy, with the invitation to design along with the amazingly talented DT for a week.   Eeeek!

Ok.  On to the sketch.  This one was created by Gayatri Murali (so talented!).

Here's my interpretation of the sketch.

I stamped all of my images onto a single layer of watercolor paper, misting each stamp with water before stamping onto the paper.

After it dried I used two dies (taped together) to cut out a rectangular frame.  I cut two more frames to glue under it, which adds some dimension to the card.   Before I stamped the sentiment, I added some ink spatters.  Then...I decided that those snowflakes needed some Wink of Stella.  So, I added a touch of clear shimmer to each one.  Finished!

I hope you'll click over to the CAS(E) this sketch! blog to see what the Design Team has created AND to play along.

Thank you Chrissy, for the chance to Guest Design this week!
