CAS Colours & Sketches #162

The last February challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches begins today and this week it's a sketch.

This was one of those cards that flew together and I knew exactly the stamps I wanted to use.

I used my misti tool to get a good deep colour on the two wall stamps and then popped the elephant sitting on top. I coloured him using promarkers and couldn't resist painting his toe nails bright red.

I added the sentiment and a single strand of twine down the left hand side and I was done.

Stamps: Create A Smile, Poppin' Over
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Promarkers: cool grey 1 & 2, hot pnk, pale pink
Twine from my stash

I'm popping this card into the Stamping Sensations February challenge where it's Anything Goes and Addicted To Stamps And More where they want some colouring.

I'm guessing you've already seen the rest of the DT creations - here. Fabulous aren't they? So what will you create with this sketch? Looking forward to finding this out!

Thanks for your time today, your visit is appreciated.  And keep crafting!

  6. Jane - I love it. The just popping over sentiment when the cute elephant is looking over the wall is brilliant. And his pedicure is perfect. Liz x
