CAS(E)this Sketch #145

Hello everyone!! I am finally back!! I am still NOT 100% but feeling so much better. If I do too much, I sleep like I am drugged. It is kind of scary!!

Anyway, when I do feel okay, I have been at my craft desk. A lot of it is just stamping and coloring images but I have created some cards. Today I want to share my card that I created for CAS(E) this Sketch #145. 

I created this card using Lawn Fawn's "Baaah Humbug" stamp set and dies.

I did a bit of masking with the hat when I stamped the sheep from this set. I colored him in using Copic markers. I used Marvy's Snow Pen to give the hat a "furry" look.

Here is the sketch that inspired me:

I could have made a ton of cards from this sketch. Isn't it awesome?

To get the sentiments evenly spaced, I used my MISTI tool. I have to say that I am finally getting used to it and it has made a world of difference in stamping!! To emphasize the sentiment a little bit more, I then die cut around it with a die from My Favorite Things.

I actually partially die cut the sheep with the dies to get the hat and the body cut out. It is not perfect but for my first experience, I didn't ruin it. I would have been upset had made a mess of things because I colored this little critter and THEN die cut him out. I don't usually do that!!

Well, I thank you for stopping by tonight. It is good to be back!! Have a great night!!

He is just charming and so perfect with just the repeated sentiment behind him.
