CAS Colours & Sketches - #212

Tha last Februaty challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches begins today. It's also my last stint as hostess for the time being and I've a fairly classic and easy to use sketch to finish up with.


I really already had this card in my head before I even started designing the sketch, so all I had to do was decide on the colours.

I used the Stampin Up pens to add the yellow to the centre of the flower and then carefully inked round it with the pink. I really like the randomness this gives and the way the colours merge a bit, particularly with repeated stampings using the misti.

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms I, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: SU, sweet sugarplum, daffodil delight, old olive; Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: uniko, Beautiful Blooms I 

I'm hoping you've got time to go check out the rest of the CC&S DT cards and our super Guest Designer Marsha too. Find them all here.

Delighted to have had your company here on my blog today, thanks so much.  And keep crafting!
