CAS Colours & Sketches #129

The second June colour challenge starts today at CAS Colours & Sketches.

A couple of new in-colours in the mix, but don't panic if they're not in your collection yet, just match as best as you can with what you have - that's what I've had to do!

I started by stamping a background of hardwood topped with falling stars and the sentiment. I die cut a stitched rectangle and then chopped it up into three parts taking care to slice between the letters of the sentiment.

I felt a little more was needed behind the three segments so I stamped three stripes in matching colours and then mounted the segments onto pads to add a little pop of dimension. Don't you just love that Uniko sentiment? Bit of a go to set for me.

Stamps:SU, Hardwood; SSS, Falling Stars; Uniko Studio, Background Builders Squared, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: SU, basic grey; Memento, peanut brittle, cottage ivy
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles 

I'm entering this card into a couple of challenges.

  2. Hi. I really like all the look of texture you've managed to get on a flat card. Wood grain wins for me every time.

  4. I was tempted to use Hardwood but I think you nailed it with the one. Those little stars look so pretty, like flowers Great use of the colours

  7. Thanks for playing with Die Cuttin' Divas this week. Very cool card.

  8. I love that hardwood stamp and don't use mine as often as I probably should! I like your little stars dancing along it. Cutting the sentiment panel is a great way to add extra interest to the card. Well done, Jane!

  9. GASP! What a beautiful, innovative, eye-catching card, Jane! Your sentiment says it all: FABULOUS! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the ATSM gallery!
