CAS-Colour and Skeches #22

Its a sketch challenge this week at CAS-Colour and Sketches.
And this is the sketch we have to inspire you:

 

I played around with this for ages and tried out lots of ideas with banners but didn't like any of them. I just couldn't get it CAS enough for me. Then I decided to leave it for a few days and see if any ideas popped into my head. And when looking through some of my stash I came across a digi sentiment I had printed out ages ago and knew this what I wanted to use for this challenge. I have flipped the sketch and really made a 'CAS' version by using score lines and gems to represent the banners. See what you think?


The sentiment is mounted on card that I have stamped using bubble wrap. This idea came from a tutorial that Mynnette posted a few weeks ago. This is such fun to do and gives great texture to your cards. If you want to give it a go, watch the tutorial here and then have some inky fun.
Our DT again have designed some fabulous cards so pop over to our blog here and be inspired!
Then get stamping, I can't wait to see what you make x
