It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #29 – sketch.
And here is my take:
I think I’m in love with this gingham wheel! The other gingham stamps I have in my collection are more “builder” ones where the edges are open on one side so you can line it up and make large swaths of pattern. The wheel has finished edges and so is perfect for single stamping (and we won’t talk about how I tried to connect them last time, lol). I’ve never considered myself a lover of “country” style, but I could get used to this wheel!
Honestly I was stuck with this sketch at first, so as I do when I’m stuck, I went to my Pinterest board looking for inspiration. I recently pinned Danielle’s card (the first one here) where she paired gingham and strawberries. And that just totally worked for me. I love Pinterest!
I didn’t want the strawberries and little white flowers to get lost in the green gingham, so I stamped those onto die cuts. The flowers are glued directly to the panel and the strawberries are popped. And now that I’m seeing the image on screen, I might go back and add little yellow centers to the flowers.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
