CAS Colours & Sketches #410

So loving my new obsession of alcohol ink backgrounds!  I am impatiently waiting for the FedEx truck to bring me more colors! I created this beauty with Citrus and Metallic Gold for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Here is the original sketch design-

In keeping with the clean and simple style, I only applied alcohol inks to a portion of the card.  The card was super simple to create.  A few drops of Citrus alcohol ink and a touch of gold metallic and the background was complete.  My images were stamped with Smoot Distress Ink.

My images are from the super fun March Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece.  You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5.  VIP members can earn the set for FREE!  This set is only available to order in the month of March.  You can find all the details here.
