CAS Colours & Sketches #157

Another bunch of colour yumminess at CAS Colours & Sketches this week.

And for me a little experimenting with a new technique. I found the instructions here. I used the gorgeous gerbera stamp set from Uniko and really love how it looks in these two colours.

I used the leaf stamp from the set to stamp all over a scrap piece of card to make my mat - I didn't have any soft suede cardstock and thought this would be a good way round the problem.

I added a sentiment in soft suede to finish off my card.

Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals Gerbera, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: SU, rose red, so saffron, soft suede

All the other DT cards and our guest designer Maaike's card can be found here - be sure to go take a look.

Thanks for visiting today, hope you've found a little inspiration here.

And keep crafting!
