CAS(E) this Sketch #127

I'm playing over at the CAS(E) this Sketch blog this week, and this is the sketch that's up for inspiration ...

Since I'm REALLY in a watercolouring kind of mood, I quickly came up with two cards. Both of them have similarities - here is the first one:

I lay down some quick colour, in a four-square formation, using one Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers) and three PTI reinkers (Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise and New Leaf), on some Canson XL 140 lb. watercolour paper.

Then I added a sentiment (PTI Wet Paint III) and some die cut embellishments (used Maggie Holmes Confetti dies with various PTI card colours). Next I mounted my card front to a Summer Sunrise card base. Confession time: I noticed that Betsy Veldman did several cards for PTI's June release where she had a white, stamped, card front attached to a coloured card base and I loved the look and had to recreate it. I just couldn't stop myself :)

I'll be back with my second card in a bit.
