Butterflies and Masks for CAS Colours and Sketches

Today was winter wet, cold and miserable. So what else to do, but spend a bit of time in the craft room? The clouds literally had a silver lining today.😀

First up, I checked out what was on offer at CAS Colours and Sketches as it's another favourite challenge site of mine. I remember playing in their 100th challenge, so it's great to see them still going strong.

I was pleased to see it was sketch week, since a sketch is just the thing to get me started when the creativity levels are down!

I layered two of the masks from the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks to create a focal panel. I used Fresh Freesia and Starry Sky.

Originally, I intended to use some flowers or foliage dies to put against the stencilled panel but the Brilliant Wings dies are just so gorgeous, I couldn't resist using butterflies after all. I cut one from Fresh Freesia and one from Starry Sky and layered them together.

The sentiments is stamped directly on to the background in Starry Sky. A few Iridescent Basic Rhinestones finished off the simple card.
