CAS Colours & Sketches #115

It was so exciting to see how you used my colours last week and now it's time for my first ever sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it, never ever thought I'd be able to produce a sketch - really hoping it inspires you!

Out came my trusty Uniko Studio Background Builders Vines set - such amazingly versatile stamps. I stamped across a strip of card, cut it to size to fit a die cut rectangle and punched a butterfly from the trimmings. I then picked up on the ink colours for the two vertical banners and punched a larger butterfly from the green card.

A simple stamped sentiment and a pearl added to the butterfly stack and I was done.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines & sentiment from A Gift For You
Inks: SU, old olive; Memento, rose bud, angel pink
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangle
Punches: Martha Stewart, butterfly; Tonic Studio, large butterfly
Embellishment: The Hobby House, adhesive pearl

Have you ever stamped a background paper? I'm really pleased about how like patterned paper my strip looks and will definitely be doing this again.

Thanks for your time today. Keeping my fingers crossed that you'll like my sketch and have time to join in with the challenge.

Keep crafting!

  3. This is so beatutiful! The sketch ist great and I really love your background paper! Amazing!

  4. The strip of floral vine looks just like store-bought designer paper! The butterfly is a sweet accent. I also like how you chose not to fill up the entire front of your card with the sketch, leaving the wide white border around it. Fantastic all-around, Jane! :)
