CASEing Brenda

I don't often play along in splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge as it posts on Sunday, but when I saw that this week honored Brenda/tessaduck, I just had to play along. I love her CAS sponged cards and picked two to CASE. 
Brenda's Green Leaves

Brenda's Welcome

I took elements from both these cards and used them to make two myself.
I went a little less CAS than Brenda on this one adding layered matting with the deckled edge. I also forgot that her card had the sentiment on the bottom ( I kind of melded her two cards in my mind I think) and added it along the side of the sponged area.

This one is a more direct CASE though again, I went for a bit more drama in the matting since today's color challenge dessert was to add black. 

In order to make the deckle edged mask, I penciled my desired space on my large post it note. I then folded this so that the edges of the penciled area matched and then cut out the inner piece using the decorative edge scissors. 
With my mask in place, I sponged the Coastal Cabana. I inked this leaf stamp in Olive and added some black. I also stamped a couple more leaves in stamped off Cabana before removing the mask.
Here's a closeup of the leaves stamped over the sponged and stamped area. I inked my sentiment using markers to omit the tag shape around the edge. I can't believe how different this sentiment looks stamped this way!
