CAS Colours & Sketches #124

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches we have a sketch for you. It's designed by Stef our hostess for this month. And such a super sketch too! I really had fun and did something a bit different for me with those squares. 

So I had this idea to use a fairy in place of the butterfly and while I was rooting through my box of Lavinia stamps I rediscovered the Fairy Words stamp. That sent my brain whirring and I decided to give it a go - and this is what I came up with:

The two smaller squares became windows and the large square became a raised element.

A trio of shimmer dots and some Wink of Stella was added just to give some extra sparkle.

Stamps: Lavinia, Fairy Words, Pixie 2
Inks: Versafine. onyx black; Adirondack, purple twilight
Dies: Spellbinders, classic square large; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Embellishments: Wink of Stella, clear; Papermania, shimmer dots

So what do you think? I'm hoping you liked my step out of my comfort zone!

Remember to check out what the rest of the DT have created to inspire you over at CAS Colours & Sketches - such a talented bunch of ladies.

Thanks for your time today. And keep crafting!
