CAS Colours & Sketches - #208

January always seems such a long month and here to prove it is the double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches which only happens when there's a fifth week in the month.


A super simple sketch with some pretty soft colours. Here's my card:

I started by placing a black washi strip across my card and then used a die to create a line of stitching above and below it. Next I stamped and hand cut the flower head using the two peachy colours from the recipe. I stamped the sentiment and butterfly and added some enamel dots and thought I was done....

..... but then I wasn't sure if there was too much black and not enough sage, so I unpicked the flower head and added a strip of sage washi on top of the black. That satisfied me better.

Stamps: HLS, Doodled Flowers, Thinking of You
Inks: SU, tangerine tango, mint macaron, peekaboo peach
Die: MFT Die-namics, basic stitched lines
Embellishments: SU, washi tapes; Simple Stories So Rad enamel dots

Don't be scared of the double challenge - ok you're not! So will I be seeing your card pop up in the CC&S gallery? Let's make that a YES! Not sure where to start? Hop on over to check out the rest of the CC&S DT inspiration cards - here.
