We have a brand new sketch challenge at CAS-Colours and Sketches this week and a little bit of freebie news from me!
First of all, here is our sketch...
Now when I designed this sketch I had a fairly good idea what I would do with it, then I got a delivery this week and changed my mind! So here is what I did...
Can you see a new stamp there? Well it's one of the fabulous new Photopolymer Stamps, Eye Catching IKAT, that you can get free! (more on that in a moment) I used Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky and Pear Pizazz markers to give a stripy effect. The leaves are simply one of the stamps, stamped 3 times then cut out.
The sentiment is from Banner Greetings, which is also a free set as it's one of the Hostess sets you could choose from if you spend £150 on one order! To get the striped effect I simply coloured the stamp using my Stampin' Write Markers, first Soft Sky, then Pear Pizazz, then Tangering Tango...fab effect don't you think? I finished with a Candy Dot.
I used the colour combo from Colour Throwdown for my inspiration this week
Now how do you get this fab set for free? Well you can choose one of three exclusive sets for free with every £60 you spend, simples! (there were 4 sets but one is already sold out!)
Now when I started out crafting I always used Photopolymer, then a lot of digi, then Stampin' Up!'s fantastic rubber stamps, so it is lovely to now have Photopolymer as part of the Stampin' Up! product offering, and I have a feeling they are going to be very popular!
If you would like to order any of the products I have used today, please do click on the link to my online shop over on the right >>>> or contact me for a personal touch and more information.
I had a busy and productive day yesterday...I finished painting the garden fence (well almost...ran out of paint!), mowed the front lawn, pulled some weeds and dead-headed the tulips...more work to still be done but I am getting there!
I have a bonus day off today as school is closed for voting, but it is supposed to be wet and rainy so I think indoor activities will be on the cards...crafting anyone?! ;)
Have a wonderful Thursday and see you tomorrow for Frugal Friday!
