CAS Colours & Sketches #177


I'm here today with my CAS Colours & Sketches DT card for this weeks challenge. Excited again, as I am hosting the challenges over there this month, which means I have picked the colour combinations and designed the sketches for you to use and hopefully inspire you to create and play along :)

This week HERE is sketch week and this is the sketch I came up with...

A fun and super simple sketch (well I think so), plus I have not restricted you on 'having' to use a tag on your card or a star, leaving plenty of scope for interpretation :)

Anyway, this is what I have come up with...

This card shows you a HUGE sneaky peek at a couple of NEW clear stamp sets being released on Saturday at Uniko ;) I just couldn't resist inking them up for todays sketch and when I saw the current colours over at Color Throwdown HERE and seen below it made me think of a Hawaiian shirt!

The tropical trend is BIG right now and I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon for this one! Having got married in Hawaii (nearly 3 years ago now), it brings back lots of lovely memories :)

I used a trio of WPlus9 inks on my card, Bloomsberry, Sweet Gelato and Sweet Nectar. I also added a good helping of clear Wink Of Stella to the Hibiscus flowers and a sentiment also from one of the sets. 

Ok, that's about all from me just now, I have a few more cards to make using these NEW Uniko stamps for my class on Saturday at The Paperlane (still a couple of places left for the class) and then I am going to enjoy some sunshine in the garden while I am bean free for the afternoon ;)

Be sure to check out the CC&S Design Team inspiration HERE and I hope to see you in the gallery too this week! 

Thanks for stopping by :)
