CAS(E) this Sketch #226 - miss you

One of my best friends is going back to Tokyo this week, and I'm going to miss her and her family (especially her little girls) so much! We had farewell brunch together last Saturday, and I made this card for them. The colored drops are teardrops of my heart... 😢 

The bright side of the card is that I was selected as a My Favorite Things' new product launch prizewinner, and received a generous coupon earlier this month. I used the coupon and got this versatile Color Drop stamp & die set and other goodies. This is the first card I made using the new color drop set.

Donna's sketch was perfect for what I wanted to make today!

I made a DIY stencil using the Color Drop die, and sponged the drops with distress ink. I die-cut a vellum drop and layered it over the blue drop. I stamped the labels in VersaFine Onyx Black, and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.

Stamp: Label Maker Sentiments (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Vellum (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Disteress Ink (Ranger - Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean), VersaFine (Tsukineko - Onyx Black)
Accessories: Color Drops STAX, Stitched Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things), Embossing Powder (Hero Arts - Ultra Fine Clear), Foam Tape (3M)

Thanks for looking!
