CAS(e) this sketch # 183

Hi there!

Another Thursday means another CAS(e) this sketch challenge!



Chrissy's sketch with the bird theme got stuck in my head and this is what I made for your
inspiration :



A close up:


... and another angle:




As always when using foil, there are so many angles to show off, each one showing something different!

I created the BG strips and sentiment in the Silhouette studio. After I printed the BG with a laser printer, I added the foil with a laminator.

The peacock  was a free die I received with the Simply Cards (Australian) magazine.

I cut it from watercolor paper and colored it with my Zig Clean color markers.

I finished off the card with a couple of rhinestones.

I am adding my link to the following challenges:

Less is more ~ Use something tactile ( the foil has a real smooth feel to it, in contrast with the water                          colored peacock and rhinestone)

Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge ~ Anything goes.

Simon says stamp Monday challenge ~ Add some texture.

Please join us this week at CAS(e) this sketch!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie
