Monday Mood Board #19 + CAS(E) This Sketch #43 & Simon Says

I have a couple of cards to share today. Originally I was going to combine the Wplus9 Monday Mood Board with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, but the card just wasn't coming together so I ended up with two cards from the pile of bits & pieces on my desk.

First I will share the Monday Mood Board card.



I was in the mood to play with patterned paper, so pulled a few pieces from a MME and Crate Paper 6x6 pad and cut them with the Wplus9 Quilt Cuts 2 Die. Of course, I ended up with enough pieces to create 4 squares, so you might see one appear on another card in the near future.


The sentiment is from Fresh Cut Florals.

This next card is based on the CAS(E)This Sketch #43 and uses a few MFT dies, a Memory Box die and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.





I didn't want to add another paper panel to cover the wood plank patterned paper, so painted a thin layer of white paint to distress and lighten it enough to stamp the sentiment. I added a couple of random dry brush strokes around the fishtail banner as well.

This card is also being linked to the Anything Goes Wednesday Stamp Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  1. I really love both of these cards. Sometimes the challenges combine easily, and sometimes it just doesn't work. In your case, you ended up with two fabulous cards. I really love how you have painted the second card.
