CAS Colours & Sketches - #216

The final challenge for March begins today at CAS Colours & Sketches. And it's another super sketch.

I went for some bold vibrant colours for my card and used ink directly from the pad.

I inked up the colours onto watercolour card to get that lovely grainy texture and then stamped the flowers directly on top.

I matted the panel in two of the ink colours and added a sentiment banner to finish it all off.

Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals Cosmos

Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade; Memento, tuxedo black

There's so much more inspiration to be had over at the CC&S blog, so go check out the rest of the DT creations.Hope to see you playing along soon.

Thanks for looking today, your visit is really important to me.  And keep crafting!
