Classes are already over for this month, so it was with pleasure that I got some time to play around today. I was inspired by both the challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches and my desire to play some more with the absolutely fabulous Dear Doily stamp set and Doily Builder thinlits. I just LOVE, LOVE this set.
For the vertical element, I first stamped the sprig of lavender. I coloured directly onto the stamp using some of the 2017-19 In Colours: Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Berry Burst. Since they'll be leaving us in a couple of months, I wanted to use them because I LOVE them too! After stamping the first one onto the card base, I stamped and die cut another two and added them to the vertical, tucking most of them under the doily die cut.
I replaced the rectangle in the sketch with the very pretty vellum die cut doily. I purchased some vellum adhesive on line and this is the first time I've used it. Although it's not completely invisible, it seems to be a lot less visible than many other adhesives.
I know that the sketch has the sentiment under the shape but it looked so much better superimposed on the doily. So I'm guilty of using the sketch as a starting point but I think you can still see it in this card.
Update: Happy to be a Top Pick at CAS Colours and Sketches
