CAS Colours & Sketches #193

Five Thursdays in September, so the last CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge this month is THE DELIGHTFUL DOUBLE!

So you need to use BOTH the colours AND the sketch. But that's not a problem when they're as fabulous as this!

First up I tackled the left hand strip and used a stencil to get that ragged edge. I then stamped the grungy spots over it and added a ribbon using the third colour.

I stamped the large Happy Birthday on another piece of card so that I could add it on top of the ribbon to make it narrower. The rest of the stamping was done with second generation ink to enhance but not overpower the main sentiment.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Classic Numbers,; SU, Touches of Texture
Inks: SU, rich razzleberry, mint macaron, tangerine tango
Ribbon: SU, rich razzleberry
Stencil: Prima Marketing

How will you use the sketch and colours? Go see what the CC&S DT have done -  here - and be INSPIRED!

So pleased to have you drop by today, your visits make my day.  So please keep visiting and of course crafting!

  2. What a terrific job combining the colors and the sketch! I like the "subway art" look of the sentiment!

  3. LOVE! The mix of sentiment stamps you have used to create this fabulous collage effect is awesome. Wonderful showcase of Uniko - Thank you! Hugs Bev x
