Keep in Touch

Challenge #456 – Sketch

Having spent the last couple of days working on taxes etc., which is my least favourite job in the world, making a card for a challenge is a welcome relief. With a new texture plate from Hero Arts called lines and swirls I thought using it as a background for this design was a great idea. I had seen some lovely CAS cards on Pinterest so my idea incorporated some of what I had seen. Stamps used are from Joy Clair (sentiment) and the little fairy is from a GKD set that I’ve had for a while. In fact this little fairy has been in a container on my desk as she was initially a failed attempt some time ago and I managed to fix her so she could be used. I fussy cut her. I also use 2 circle dies from an infinity set from Hero Arts and I cut the smaller circle from the larger one deliberately off center. The little flower die cut is from Crafters Companion and came with my Gemini and the white leaves are fallouts from something else. I added some sparkle to the fairy wings and sat her in the circle with the flower in her hand. After adding the sentiment to the smaller circle I used the die as a template and added a sparkle border to the edges before gluing it on the left side of the larger circle. Hubby came in while I was taking the photograph and his reaction was Wow, so I’m well pleased.

    1. Thanks a lot. My first try with the texture plate had too much pressure so it actually cut the paper, but 2nd time worked well. It was fun to do something pleasant.


  1. Lovely! Nice texture in the background. I think it picks up the essence of the sketch. This sketch is very close to this week’s one at SplitCoast Stampers. They have circles, where this one is ovals, and they added a small heart. I love sketches as they get my brain rolling through ideas.

  2. Great CAS card. The texture for the layering panel gives just enough interest without removing the focal images. Perfect take on the challenge.

  3. Thanks a lot. I have another pinpoint die plate to try out that arrived yesterday, so I shall see what I can come up with soon.


  4. What a wonderful way to combine the elements of the sketch! Beautifully CAS Johanna and I love the subtle textured background too. Thanks for playing along over at CAS Colours & Sketches this week!
