CAS Colours & Sketches #111

A sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches this week - and what a sketch!

OK so I confess when I first saw this sketch my fear was high! But beginning by rotating the layout made such a big difference for me, just couldn't get my head round all that top heavy stuff. And then, guess what, this sketch turned out to be a favourite and I loved playing with my stamps to fill the spaces.

I'm not a great one for bigging up my own work, but I have to say I'm really smitten by how this card turned out. Just goes to show what can be achieved when you calm down and get creating!

And it uses two of my current favourite stamp sets from my all time favourite designers. Vine flowers from Uniko Studio and that large spotty and small plain sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines & Squared; Clearly Besotted, Happy Birthday
Inks: SU, crushed curry, melon mambo, rich razzleberry

So pleased you found time to visit here today, thanks so much. Have fun with the sketch and keep crafting!
