Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and JoAnn has chosen a sketch for the theme this time around.
Our guest and my team mates have some wonderful inspiration for you, so hope to see you in the gallery.
I struggle with sketches as they usually involve layers which go against my CAS grain lol!
I substituted the horizontal layer with a large sentiment but otherwise I think I followed the design.
The background panel is another piece of silver foil cardstock that I applied alcohol inks to.
I used the same colours in this card. You never get the same results with the colours twice, although I think I was heavier handed with the ink bottles this time around!
I added some gold foil on the sticky inky parts to lighten things up a bit.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
AAA Birthday, anything goes

Silver foil cardstock; alcohol inks slate, rust and pitch black; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die; Mama Elephant scripty birthday die; Papertrey Ink star die; gold foil cardstock; sentiment sticker.
Thanks for visiting,
Each card that I see in the team's inspiration, I see that they have interpreted it better and better I am pinning this one as I think it would be great for a masculine card.
I love your alcohol ink panel Cathy and that big birthday die cut is perfect for the horizontal element. Great take on the sketch.
Cathy, WOW, I love your alcohol ink strip, all that gold is so striking and is perfect with the star and the birthday die. Well done! And really CAS too! I am going to have to remember this design! Perfect for masculine cards which I struggle with!
Gorgeous card! I love the alcohol ink panel.
The silver foil makes an amazing base for adding AIs on top, Cathy! Fabulous use of the sketch! xx
Beautiful Cathy and love the mix of AIs and also the pretty gold star and sentiment part black and part gold, such a great idea and the black card base is just perfect..a fabulous card. x
