CAS Colours & Sketches #132

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches it's my first sketch for the month of July.

All those straight lines had me reaching for my washi tape and Uniko Background Builders Squared stamps.

And to balance all those linear elements a simple row of roundness created with some apple stamps from Clearly Besotted.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, An Apple A Day & Say It In Style; Uniko, Background Builders Squared
Inks: SU, real red, daffodil delight; Memento, pear tart
Embellishments: Washi tape from my stash

I'm hoping you'll enjoy working with this sketch and will link up to the CC&S gallery. Check out all the other DT creations and then your head will be spinning with ideas!

Stamping theses apples reminded me of when I visited Gunby Hall, Lincolnshire for their Autumn Apple Festival. The gardens there are simply gorgeous and linked by lots of grassy or gravel paths. So it seems fitting to add my photo for Our Beautiful World's word this week - PATHWAY. 

Thanks for looking today. And keep taking photographs as well as crafting!
