Hello everyone!
Wow it's good to be back with a DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches! I've had a few weeks off as I had some family issues and it took a fair bit of my time dealing with everything, and to be honest, I just didn't feel much like crafting.

But I'm back today with a card I made from just one stamp set...Awesomely Artistic...

I do love this set, ever since I had a play with it at Telford back in May! I've had it a while but just not had the inclination to play with it until now.

I had a little play with the 'kissing' technique on this card....I inked up the flowery stamp and then I 'kissed' it with the fern frond stamps. This gives the ferns a more subtle effect and a slightly watercolour effect. What do you think? The dragonfly was sprayed with water after inking, then stamped, which again gives a smudged, watercolour effect. Why not try it yourself?

You know, I get a lot of people comment on how 'artistic' and creative I am when they see my cards. My reply is; 'I may be creative, but I assure you, I don't have an artistic bone in my body....I just get great stamps from Stampin' Up!'

As I couldn't decide what sentiment I wanted on my card I am leaving it blank, which means I can enter it into the challenge at SUO Challenges where they would like to see cards with no sentiment this week.

I look forward to visiting you all for inspiration...I need lots at the moment after being off so long!
