CAS Colours & Sketches - The Double!


This is the last week in June and my final hostess week for this month over HERE at CAS Colours & Sketches. I will be back hosting again later in the year ;) I have really enjoyed hosting the challenges this month and popping by all those who have joined in each week.

Anyway, as this is week no.5 it is the dreaded double week! Though I have an easy one for you and it uses my FAVE colour combo of ALL time...

What do you think? Fun right...? This is how I went with the sketch and colours...

I amorally getting into the swing of these Clarity Stencil Brushes that I have been using HERE and HERE. I still need a lot of practice especially with this SU! stripe stencil.

I think I should have temporarily adhered in-between the stencil lines to keep them down better and for the ink and brush bristles not to sneak behind them! Practice makes perfect though :)

All the supplies are listed at the end of the post and as I have used stencilling again on my card I thought I would enter my card into the "Less is More" challenge HERE

Ok, that is all from me just now. I have so much I want to "squeeze" into a few bean free hours that I know time is just going to fly by! 

Be sure to hop on over HERE to see what the other CAS Colours & Sketches girls have made using this weeks challenge. I assure you that you won't be disappointed ;) Plus all the info on joining in on the challenge and link up can be found there too. I hope to see you in the gallery! 

Ink: Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers. VersaFine Onyx Black
Card Stock: SU! Whisper White
Accessories: Clarity Stencil Brushes, SU! Stripes Stencil and Wink Of Stella.


  1. Absolutely Fabulous Bev, love the stripes at the edge and prefect sentiment on textured curve!

  2. This card is fabulous! I love the stripes against the curve and the variation in color since you're stenciling instead of stamping.

  3. What a fabulous card! So bright and a great layout/design. I love the stitched edge and big sentiment, so fab. Thanks for an awesome Less is More card!

  4. Yep, I agree a fabulous card. I like stripes in the curve, shouldn't work but it does, so well!
