CAS Colours & Sketches #192

Time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and this week it's a sketch.

I decided to keep to just two colours and one of my favourite large sentiment stamps.

I stamped the row of candles first meaning them to be perfectly placed in a straight line. I wish! That idea lasted only to the second stamping - and anyway I like the jiggly line. The 'wish' was stamped straight on top of the candles.

I lightly drew round the inside of the rectangle die and then stamped my background flourishes before popping the die cut onto pads and adhering over the top.

Stamps: Uniko, Big & Bold Wish, Balloon Bash; SU, Touches of Texture
Inks: SU, smoky slate, delightful dijon
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangle stax

Another great sketch from Karen, the CC&S hostess for September. Hope you'll be playing along.

Thanks for your time today, I do appreciate it. And keep crafting!
