Hi everyone!

A new sketch for the week over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:

and the card I've made:

I've stencilled my bg with a Tim Holtz Chevron die, using Shabby Shutters DI.  The black and white arrowheads was cut with the TH die and given some shine with Embossing Paste and clear EP.
Added some washi tape strips.
Arrow stamp from the 'Borderline' set by Verve.
The big arrow is part of the 'Fun & Funky Arrows' set by Hot off the Press.  I stamped the arrow, gave it some shine with Clear 3D Gloss and fussy cut it.
Alphabet letters cut using a Tim Holtz alphabet die and given some shine with Clear 3D gloss.
Added some black plastic dots and it was done!
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!!!

Till next time!

Keep well!!
Kind regards

What a fabulously graphic card Petra. This would look amazing done on a canvas and hung on a wall.

Veels geluk met jou CTS favorite laas week! Ek het geweet daai een is 'n wenner!
'n Pragtige 'masculine' gevoel wat jy hier geskep het. Lekker tekstuur en so 'n collage ontwerp wat ek net glad nie regkry nie!
Mooi Sondag daar!

The moment I saw the sketch I KNEW that your card would be fabulous, cuz this design suits your style perfectly. And I was right - another amazing creation! I love how you 'shaded out' the background stencil AND the amazing movement you created with the two arrows directing all the attention to the sentiment - so clever and so effective!
