CAS(E) This Sketch #233

Image
Did I say how much I am LOVING my week off?! No?! Well ... 2 ... TWO - inky projects in one week - and I still have time to play! It's been a blast!
I created this project to play along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!



I am loving my watercolours right now, and pulled out my Pool Party, Lost Lagoon andIsland Indigo inks from SU for that moody blue background!  I saw the awesome card DT member Donna created with the balloon, and I knew I wanted to use her as my muse - but I saw clouds :) 
I couldn't resist using more of my Unity Stamps for this project - I got both the image and sentiment in a grab bag - lucky me! I added a Wink of Stella to my Daffodil Delight and Fresh Fig butterfly, up close it just SPARKLES! I added those sequins from Neat & Tangled for just a bit more shine. 
Let me know you were here - leave some love - Thanks for stopping by! 
Love, Peace n' Ink Amber

It gave me time to get up into my studio today - and admittedly, I have not been up there for quite some time. There were days I would walk in and look around and sadly, my mojo was gone.  Poof.  Nothing.
But today I made up for it.! I created some wonderful designs that I was happy with - and when I noticed the Paper Players Challenge this week - I knew I wanted to play along and create something to get my mojo back on course! 

And here is my design!


I started to play with a piece of white CS and my Tim Holtz distress inks, creating that sweet little layer that resembled wood. I stamped a CTMH image I just love and combined with a  wonde…
