CAS(E) this Sketch #237

The Sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #237 was a little challenging I thought but after seeing the samples and other entries I think I figured it out.

Would you like to play along, CLICK HERE.

I am starting off with some Vellum card stock and a 'grateful' stamp that I will emboss with gold powder.

Don't forget to use your powder tool before stamping in the versamark ink.
 I am using some water color paper that I heavily added water all over.

This is the width for two die cut leaves, I pre measured as not to waste my paper.
 I started off with an orange color.
 Added some red.
 Then some brown.
 Then some gold splatter.
 This was my second water color piece which I did not like.

I think the color was too concentrated.

I scrapped it in the garbage.
THIS was my first one which I loved loved.
 Using a stitched leave die I cut out the leaves.
 A stitched rectangle die with some cream card stock.
Again that same gold splatter.

I went back and forth add the splatter or don't add the splatter.
Tiny bit of glue behind the vellum card stock embossed sentiment.

I left it longer then my card so I can also fold it back and add some tape to the back as well.
I tucked the leaves under the Vellum putting some liquid adhesive on the part of the leave that would be behind the Vellum.

I snuck in a dimensional under the leave to give it a bit of height.
All done, I am very pleased with how this turned out.

Side view, you can see the shadow behind the leaves.
