CAS(E) this Sketch #305

Playing in the CAS(E) this Sketch #305...CTS #305!

My card

I just got this new STAMPlorations stamp set "Carved Flowers" designed by the
very talented Shirley of The Bees's Knees.
Be sure and check out Shirley's cards using her new stamp set.

I placed my Strathmore Mixed Media card front in MISTI and began the 
stamping with the branch image moving 4 times and stamping  with Versafine black ink.
Next stamped and moved the smallest leaf 6 times with the black ink.

Then used the 4th and 5th sized flowers and stamped with Distress Ink: Worn Lipstick 
and Festive Berries.  Then colored all images with Zigs watercolor markers.

Die cut the card front with CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch
Rectangles Nesting Dies. 

Stamped sentiment from the set with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with
SU Clear EB Powder and attached to SU Whisper White Thick card base. 

Added Wink of Stella to all the stamped images and Done!

Thank you Shirley for another fun stamp and sentiment set design.  Hugs...
