CAS Colours & Sketches #187

Hi All

Sorry it's a bit late but here's my design for CAS Colours & Sketches #187



Thanks to a recent play date with fellow Royal Stampers (Sara, Hilary, Leonore and of course my partner in craft, Barry) I used the Jar of Love set for this card. It started off as a 1 layer card but I ended up cutting the different pieces as I wasn't too happy with the composition of the original.


Having only 3 colours to play with, I used 2nd Generation technique to achieve lighter shades. I also used Wink of Stella on the flowers and the distressed burlap which unfortunately isn't very clear on the photos.


My favourite part is the Chocolate Chip coloured and glittered string which mimics the stamp. It's so quick and easy to do but perhaps will need to heat set with an iron next time as it leaves a light residue on the Whisper White card.

Check out the rest of the design team's work and join.

Thanks for stopping by

Jay

  2. The terrarium jar is such a cute idea! The string bow is the perfect finishing touch. It's been such a pleasure to see what you create as our guest designer at CC&S! :)

  4. The jar is such a fun way to create a collection of pretty flowers - and to use the required colours. Thanks for being our GD this month. Liz x
