CAS Colours & Sketches #227 Sketch Challenge


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

This week is sketch week and this is what I came up with to hopefully spark your creativity....

I've used circles on the sketch, but feel free to substitute them for a shape/element that inspires you. As long as I can see the basis of the sketch you are good to go! Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch too when creating your card. 

Don't forget to keep it CAS and a card though, to be considered for the weekly winners!

Here's how I used it...

These were the stamps I had imagined to use when I designed the sketch! As usual I reached for some of my favourite colours in my Altenew ink collection to stamp the blooms from Beautiful Blooms II. It's been a while since I have inked up this set, so it was nice to dust it off and give it some love ;) 

Both the blooms and leaves are fussy cut out and adhered flat to the card with DST, with just the sentiment from Simply Said adhered to the card using the thinner foam adhesive. I added a little sparkle to the leaves with some Stampin' Up! fine glitter, a trio of enamel dots and a strip of yummy polka dot DP to compliment the leaves.

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.
