Verve Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  Yes...it is definitely Verve week on the blog!  Today I'm playing along with the Sketch Challenge...holy moly look at all those layers!  I decided I needed to try and simplify it for my CAS loving heart.  So...two of the layers are inked panels.  I masked off the card to ink up the light lilac panel and then I added a stamped panel from the grid stamp.  Used a couple of dies to finish off the next two layers.  Have to say I need to try this technique more often.  I like the end result!  What do you think?

Holy moly, Lynn (or should that be, Diva?!)!!! You tackled that sketch with superb CAS style! I ran for the hills when I saw that sketch and I'm still trying to get my brain around it as I really want to play along! I'm taking your card as inspiration of what I can do to CAS-ify it a little! ;D
Hugs!

I'm with you, Lynn. I love the way your card turned out. I never imagined a sketch becoming CAS before! So Pretty!

Now THAT is a clever way to layer! Love it! I had a similar feeling with the retrosketch this week, and ended up making one panel out of acetate! Love this, so sweet and pretty:) Big hugs, my friend!

I adore, adore, adore this! Now THIS is what I'm talking about! We were talking about breaking a sketch down in the Verve forum last week and this is what I was saying...you can make a layered sketch CAS...this is just perfect! LOVE the tag, senitment, butterfly...masking...everything!
