CAS Colours & Sketches #259 - Sketch


Welcome back to another fun challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. Patricia is your hostess for February and this week HERE she has this fun sketch to inspire you...

As soon as I saw the stripes on the sketch it firstly reminded me of the line stamp contained in Simply Said Blocks and I thought of it rainbow style. However, they also reminded me of the inspiration challenge over at Time Out Challenges seen HERE and below. 

So I decided to combine the challenges to create my card for today. As you can see I was totally inspired by the black and white stripes, the LOVE word, hearts and gold. Basically the whole inspiration photo!! 

I've kept to the sketch exactly and think both the inspiration and sketch went hand in hand. Love it when that happens ;) 

I put my MISTI tool to good use stamping the lines, though my measurements went a little off at one point :( Hopefully it isn't too noticeable! 

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!
