Quilled Congratulations

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Quilled Congratulations | by karen @ carefree creations

When I designed this sketch, I wanted a dripping/draped feel to the image. While I didn’t use a conventional floral image, my card is pretty much what I envisioned.

I love this quilled image set. To stamp this, I first used a light grey ink, then stamped with solid images – not everywhere, but most. Then I re-stamped with Versamark and gold embossed the outlines.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
