'Dreaming of you...'

I love the fact that I'm frequently blogging these days!

Well...last night I made two cards for different challenges.

Before I show you what I made, I want to mention someone who has inspired me very much. She makes awesome CAS cards. She uses hand- drawn elements on her cards. She masks and sponges...she creates magic! I'm sure many might have already known her but for those of you who don't know her, she is Deepti. She owns a beautiful blog called Dee's Art Utopia. She's 'one of a kind' CAS card makers. Thanks Deepti, for inspiring me and so many others. Friends, pls do visit her blog and leave her some love... :)

I tried sponging with my Memento dew drops for the first time!

I'll share a card here and the second card in another post since I want to enter both the cards in 'CAS(E) this sketch!' challenge.

Here is one...

Like those clouds??

I sponged them with Memento ink using a negative of the flat bottomed cloud. I tried to get two shades... I hope to do better next time! :)

I know I messed up the sentiment! :( Looooong story!

I love glossy accents. I've a crush on it! :)

Do you see the glossy doors and windows? :)

I'm linking this up at 'CAS(E) this sketch!' (I have changed the orientation of the sketch and also changed the position of the sentiment. I hope this is ok...)

Also linking it to CAS-ual Fridays- Back to school challenge (As soon as I think about my school days I remember our drawing class where everybody used to draw houses, hills, waterfalls! :p I'm sure all kids do that even now... :))
