CAS Colours & Sketches - #214

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches there's a really simple and oh so usuable sketch for you to play with.


We are a CAS (clean and simple) challenge at CC&S so please bear that in mind when creating your card - but I'm thinking it's not hard to make something CAS with this sketch. Here's what I came up with:

I randomly stamped the sketchy butterflies in black and then turned the stamps over and added the colour. Great tchnique!

I die cut the butterfly panel into a stitched circle which I inlaid into the base card and finished off by adding a die cut word in a matching colour.

Stamps: Stamplorations,Winged Things
Inks: SU, pool party, sweet sugarplum
Dies: Cutplorations, Amazing; MFT Die-namics, Inside/Out Stitched Circles

The rest of the CC&S DT have cards to inspire you - here - do go take a look. I'm looking forward to seeing your cards pop up in the CC&S gallery, go have fun with this sketch!

Thanks for your time today, your visit to my blog is much appreciated.  And keep crafting!
