CAS Colours & Sketches #127

As usual a new month at CAS Colours & Sketches begins with a colour challenge. Lizy is our hostess for June and she has picked three of the brand new in-colours from Stampin' Up to inspire us this month.
Now I'm thinking most of you are going to be in the same boat as me and not have been able to get your hands on the new colours yet. But fear not, as always there is no obligation to use Stampin' Up inks just choose from your stash as close as possible to the given colours. Here's my card:

Not too bad a colour match - well on my screen it looks okay! And I lucked out with that mint spotty card strip.

I stamped the jug and the grasses first before die cutting the label shape. I stamped the jug a second time on a scrap of card and cut it out to cover all the stems that I decided looked a bit messy. Then I put the label die cut back into its hole and stamped the sentiment right across. Finally the label was mounted on to pads to add dimentsion.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Simple Silhouettes
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU, pool party, sahara sand; Adirondack, watermelon
Die: Spellbinders, small label

So now all you need to do is check out the rest of the DT inspiration cards and then get busy creating your own. Have fun!

Thanks for looking. And keep crafting!

  3. I love the way you've layered the image on different levels. I'm a sucker for that technique. Lovely!

  4. I really like the layered look of your image and sentiment, and I'm adding that to my mental list of "things to try". :)
