CAS Colours & Sketches #168

Such a bright and beautiful trio of colours chosen by Louise at CAS Colours & Sketches this week. A joy to create with!

I started by stamping one of the gorgeous grunge stamps from SU onto watercolur paper. I then spritzed it with water and let the colours run until there was nothing left of the stamp.

Once the inks had dried I stamped the butterfly and sentiment on top. A few enamel sprinkles and a narrow matting onto black card and I was done.

Stamps: Newton's Nook, Beautiful Wings; SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, melon mambo, daffodil delight, tangerine tango; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, beetle black asst.

I know you're going to love these colours as much as me, so get on over to check out the rest of the CC&S DT samples and then indulge yourself and enjoy!

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