What with being ill and having family to stay for Easter, my card for CAS Colours and Sketches is ever so slightly late this week but only by about half an hour so I'll make this a quick post.
My inspiration came from Louise's fab sketch and also from Less is More where their challenge this week is a colour challenge to use 'predominantly black'. I was going to do some Zentangle which I love doing but ran out of time, so I used some 'zentangly' stamps instead! The black background has been embossed with a birthday embossing folder. I have used touches of turquoise just to 'lift' the design by edging the background with a narrow mat, by using small turquoise sequins in the centres of the flowers and finishing the design with a small butterfly.
Stamps: Mini flowers (Woodware)
Embossing folder: Happy Birthday (Papermania)
Snippets: Turquoise card, sequins and butterfly
Thanks for visiting my blog today. Can't wait to see what you do with Louise's great sketch!
