Friday Focus

Today I'm sharing a card I created using the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Mmm that had me thinking for a while, especially as a few of their DT had used a die to achieve that extended semi circle shape - a die I don't have. So it was outside the box thinking that won the day for me and here's what I came up with:

I rotated the sketch a quarter turn to the right and masked off a rectangular strip and inked it up in a couple of distress ink colours. I then stamped the large Funky Fossil butterfly on top - I thought the shape sort of resembled the sketch shape.

I finished off with a die cut spiro circle sentiment popped up onto pads.

Stamps: Funky fossil Designs, Butterfly Wishes
inks: Ranger distress, picked rasped, cracked pistachio; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: Xcut, spiro circle

Thanks for looking today, I'm really delighted to have had your company.

And keep crafting!
