CAS Colours & Sketches #247 - The Double!


Happy Tuesday, after a little hiatus last week due it being half term and the Beans were off nursery, meaning little time to get much done I am back! I can't believe we are on the last day of October!

As this is the 5th Tuesday of October, it is 'The Double' challenge over HERE at CAS Colours & Sketches! 

Here is the challenge...

And here is how I have used both the colours & the sketch...

I usually struggle with the double, but this time I knew exactly what I wanted to create and what supplies to use! 

I've been so inspired by my awesome DT and how they have been using the NEW Uniko Stencils, like Jane and Lindsey have HERE and HERE, that I had to give them some more love! 

I've used the Wonky Stripes Stencil and I simply masked off to ink one stripe at a time, one in Baja Breeze and one in Real Red as I don't have Riding Hood Red! I then used the Festive Sentiments to stamp the Merry Christmas and mounted the panel flat to a River Rock card base. A few enamel stars finished the card off.

That's all from me today, I am hoping to catch up on some work once the beans are at nursery today and *try* not to eat all the Halloween sweets before the Trick or Treaters come this evening!! 

Thanks for stopping by, but if you need some more inspiration using the challenge be sure to hop on over HERE to see what the rest of the CAS Colours & Sketches Design Team have made.
