CAS Colours & Sketches #197

The last October challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches begins today. Oh my! How quickly is this year going?

This week it's a wonderful sketch designed by DT Liz. Love that strip across the bottom and the trio of embellishments on the left hand side.

I stamped the daisy row first and then brushed on three - keeping that trio thing going -  colours of distress ink.

The sentiment was die cut and the same three ink colours brushed over it and my favourite enamel dots replaced the stars from the sketch.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Daisy Row
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, spiced marmalde, peacocok feathers
Die: Clearly Besotted, thanks
Embellishments: My Mind's Eye, Now & Then enamel dots; Simple Stories, So Rad enamel dots

As you can see this card was totally inspired by the Cutplorations challenge at Stamplorations.

Have you already looked at the rest of the CC&S DT cards? Fabulous aren't they? So now it's your turn to be inspired by the sketch and I'll look forward to seeing how you interpret it.

Thanks for you time today, so pleased you spent some of it looking at my blog.  And keep crafting!
