CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #108

I love using sketches. They give you lots of design inspiration either when you're in a hurry or your imagination seems to have gone AWOL! This week at CAS Colours and Sketches we have a lovely sketch from our hostess, Jacqueline. I've gone with a Valentine's theme as love definitely seems to be all around blogland at the moment.

The banner strips are scraps from my box and surprisingly were not from the same patterned paper pack originally. The stamp is a dinkie from one of my favourite companies, IndigoBlu. This is stamped in Versafine 'Vintage Sepia' which is a great ink for very detailed stamps. It has been die cut with a Spellbinders label die and mounted on foam pads.

I have followed the sketch quite closely as I like to be able to see the original sketch clearly in my finished creation. The sentiment has been attached with a homemade heart pin using a paper clip! I have reprinted the simple directions below if you want to have a go at making some.

Thank you - we had a bumper crop of entries last week. I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing what you make of this week's sketch.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Well that's a clever tip to make a heart - will be giving that a try! Love your muted colours this week Stef, so pretty.

  2. I agree with Jane - the soft colors are lovely! Nicely done this week, Stef!
