CAS(E) this Sketch #233 - home sweet home

I was looking forward to playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch this weekend!
This is Hannelie's sketch for this week #233.



And here's my take on the sketch:



I actually made 3 cards with different backgrounds (ink distressed, watercolor, and watercolor with salt added), but my trusty personal critic (my husband!) says the soft ink-distressed background best fits the sentiment and the peaceful scenery die-cut, and I agreed.

If you are interested, these are the other cards. Interesting variations, aren't they?

 (watercolor)
I was inspired by the colors of Nancy's these creations.


 (watercolor with salt added)

I wanted to use a sentiment stamp with typewriter font to match the atmosphere, but I didn't have one. Instead, I used MS Word to create a sentiment (font: my underwood), and printed it on the cardstock.



Paper: Bristol Smooth White (100 lb), Whisper White (Stampin' Up!)
Ink:
Distress Ink (Ranger - Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade)
Accessories: Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies (Stampin' Up!), Mini Hearts Set (Simon Says Stamp)


Thanks so much for your visit!

Thanks for the comparison, Hideko. Love the warm colours...really makes the homes on the hill pop. I have Candied Apple, but have yet to use it. Three beautiful cards. 😊 Trina

All 3 of your cards are gorgeous, Hideko. I have to agree...your DH has a good artistic eye...BTW, so does my husband. Denny is my best positive critic:-) Aren't we lucky. Thanks too for the shout out on my Alcohol ink note card set. Hugs..

Thank you, Nancy! And yes, we ARE lucky. :-) I noticed that the link to your splitcoast gallery above was broken, and I fixed it yesterday. Sorry...

Thanks for your sweet comments, Hannelie! You inspired me to create my own sentiments. I love your sentiment designs!

Wonderful take on the sketch Hideko! I love the different backgrounds--gives each card a slightly different feeling!

Papercraft Boutique said...

Thanks so much for your sweet comments, Donna! You're right - the same layout, but different feelings. Lesson learned. :-)
