CAS Colours & Sketches #278 - Sketch


How did we get to the last week of June?! This month at CAS Colours & Sketches and Wei is our hostess.  This week HERE Wei has a fun sketch to inspire your card making...

Here's how I used it...

I've been struggling with lack of creative mojo / energy and general 'get up & go' this past week, beyond the day to day stuff of being a mummy, housewife and keeping Uniko ticking over :( 

Anyway, I managed (albeit late) to pull this card together using a piece I had stencilled a few weeks ago, but not used on anything! I used the recently released Uniko Mehndi Mandala Stencil and Stampin' Up! embossing paste (white sparkle), through the stencil design onto black card stock.

As you can see I rotated the sketch to create a landscape card, as I wanted to use a horizontal sentiment for the rectangular piece of the sketch. The stencilled mandala piece was trimmed on the diagonal and adhered to my base card using double sided tape. The sentiment from Simply Said Blocks II is stamped and die cut out with a MFT die and adhered using 1mm thick foam adhesive. 

I just LOVE the sparkle of this embossing paste :)

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!
