CAS Colours & Sketches #183

A lovely fresh combo of colours at CAS Colours & Sketches this week all chosen by Stef, our hostess for this challenge.

I'm so loving the new Touches of Texture stamp set from SU and especially that flower i just couldn't resit using it again this week.

I die cut the stitched circle and stamped the flower using SU crushed curry and Memento teal zeal. I added the teal sprinkles and then popped the circle back into its space.

I cut the tip top taupe base card and was momentarily distracted and when I looked back the circle had slipped to one side of the aperture and I thought, why not? So that's where it stayed. One of those unexpected little bonuses that sometimes happen whilst crafting.

Stamps: SU, Touches of Texture; Uniko, Simply Said
Inks: SU, crushed curry; Memento, teal zeal, tuxedo black
Card: SU, tip top taupe
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched circles

Have you already looked to see how the rest of the CC&S DT have used the colours? Thought you might have - clever ladies aren't they?

Thanks for your time today, I love that you visited my blog.  And keep crafting!

  1. LOVE the texture of the soft sprayed ink effect, I can see why you love the set. The offset die cut is a fabulous design feature. Great use of the challenge colours and a CAS delight. Hugs Bev x

  2. Love the way the circle landed! Great card, Jane!

  3. One of my favourite sets in the new catalogue! I love the way the circle is offset - definitely a happy error!

  4. I definitely love the way the circle is offset from the aperture, I guess that's how a lot of new ideas are born! Sorry I didn't get round to voting before the deadline this week. Stef x

  5. I agree - having the circle offset from the aperture looks fantastic (and like it was planned)! It's a lovely card, Jane!

  6. I'm certain that your subconscious planned the movement of the circle! It's a great feature of the design. Liz x
