CAS Colours & Sketches #173


It's time for another challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches and this week our host Caro has a sketch for you to spark your creativity HERE and seen below. This is another fun sketch with SO many possibilities...

Don't you think...? 

This is how I used the sketch this week...

I decided to ink up the recently restocked Background Builders: Round in Circles clear stamp set and I needed a little more help to spark my creativity and so I combined the sketch with this weeks ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below.

The colours are all faves of mine, but ones I wouldn't thought of putting together! I started by stamping the circle strip in black ink, I used black to define them and also so the colours stood out a little more than if I had used kraft.

I used my SU! markers to colour, blend and stamp the happy birthday sentiment from Simply Said Birthday and then mounted the panel onto a kraft CS base using foam adhesive.

Ok, that's all from me just now. I have a few bean free hours this afternoon and I hope to spend some time creating :) it's been too long!

Be sure to check out the rest of the CC&S design team inspiration HERE and I hope to see you in the gallery too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
