CAS Colours & Sketches #225 - The Double!


I'm here again with my next CAS Colours & Sketches design team inspiration for you. This week is Patricia's turn for hostess as we each take it in turns for May & June.

This week is THE DOUBLE....

Here's how I used it...

I kept things pretty simple and chose a large stamp to be the focus of the design. The doily is from Decorative Doilies - The Hands of Time. I had to find close matches for the Purely Pomegranate and Blue Bayou as I have never had those colours!

I added an offset die cut rectangle instead of a full mat rectangle to add a little interest to the focal point and finished the design off with a few of my favourite enamel dots! 

That's all from me today, if you need some more inspiration using the sketch be sure to pop by the CAS Colours & Sketches blog HERE and see how the DT and Guest Designer have used it.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  8. I love that doily image - it reminds me of a Spirograph design! (Not sure if Spirograph was a thing in the U.K. when you were growing up, but it was one of my favorite creative toys when I was a child.) I love your offset design in both the focal panel and its mat. Awesome job!

  9. Love the way you used your stamped image on this one, Bev!!
